Bahraini artisit Khalid Alzayani, after spending many years as an engineer and a manager in multinational engineering companies, he decided to make a commitment to his art.
Coming from mechanical engineering background, his paintings reflect his passion for energy and dynamics. His abstract style, bold palette knife work and fearless brush work allow him to communicate emotions and mode felt at the moment of painting. His paintings are gestural, impactful and full of movements.
His lively brush strokes, whether straight or more playfully curving and dancing, always convey a sense of emotions and delight in his art. He obviously love to paint. The viewer sees this and it is rather contagious. Joyful and energizing.
To him creativity is a derivative of mode and ambience during painting sessions. He believes that, the character of a painting reflects the mode of the artist thru palette knife work, brush strokes, texture and color.
He believes that a painting has a life of its own that evolves during painting session. It develops as he draws lines and colours on the canvas.
