The exhibition, that will run from October 10 until the end of the year, comes as part of COYA’s ongoing support of local emerging creative talent, and presents within itself an experience that combines exquisite Peruvian dishes with distinctive imagery and music.
Rashid Al Mulla is a self-taught artist born and raised in the UAE. As someone passionate about humanity and the environment, most of his works — acrylic paintings on canvas — focus on delivering human emotions and shedding light on issues, such as water scarcity, deforestation, and animal cruelty.
Each artwork in this new series dives into the different stories of culture and emotions of humans, specifically women, and how their simple facial expressions can convey a message to the viewer. The exhibition will also include pieces inspired by elements of Peruvian culture and heritage.
“I wanted to project my unique take on illustrating human emotion and the power of facial expressions. The illustrations I have devised incorporate a myriad of vivid coloring and free-flowing lines that help to draw the viewer into the moment,” said Al Mulla.
Rashid started his career at Sharjah Art Institute in 1998, where he took different art classes ranging from sketching, oil painting, acrylic painting, to sculpture. He has exhibited in several galleries and events around the UAE and has been commissioned to create a 140-meter long mural alongside other artists by the Cultural Office of Sheikha Manal Bint Mohammad Al Maktoum.
