Jamal A. Rahim was born in Muharraq, Bahrain, in 1965. Rahim is a self-taught artist. He traveled to India at an early age with the intention of exploring the world and following his dreams. After his return, he had his first group exhibition at Al Hala Club in Muharraq in 1987. In 1990, Rahim had his first solo exhibition at Bahrain Arts Society, and in 1995 he had his first international solo exhibition at the Abu Dhabi Cultural Foundation. Over the next few years, his work was widely exhibited in Europe and Asia, and a series of solo and group exhibitions all over the world brought Rahim’s work to the attention of the public.
Inspired by the principles of pure reality, Rahim chooses to portray his subjects in their most realistic form. His swirls, dashes, and bold use of color have gained him praise on national and international levels.
He is a member of the Bahrain Arts Society, and he has been a guest of honor at several national and international art events including at the 4th International Triennial of Graphic Art in Egypt (2003), at the second Biennial of Art Books in the Bibliotheca Alexandrina (Egypt, 2006); and he was a member of the jury of the 26th Mini Print International of Cadaqués (Spain, 2006). His book Rasa’el Qasab was added to the British Museum’s collection in 2007, and in 2010 his artwork Alqalam was acquired by the Asian Civilisations Museum in Singapore.
