Living and working in a small village of Sindh, Rashdi’s life has been surrounded with a flow of sacred traditions that have been practiced by his family, centuries before he was born. These practices have become a part of his identity, and it’s hard to get away from these social mores and norms. It makes him feel distant and an outsider within his own physical space.
His colourful pieces reflect how he feels and looks at his surroundings, places and experiences, through personal and artistic materials and mediums. Colour plays a central role in his art, to accentuate his emotional links with the inevitable stories and facts of his surroundings.
