Mehdi Moutashar is the joint prize winner of the Jameel Prize 5, on view at Jameel Arts Centre from April 25 to September 14, 2019.
About the Artist
Mehdi Moutashar’s art lies at the confluence of two artistic traditions, the western heritage of geometric abstraction and the Islamic aesthetic tradition of geometrical order and lines. His art is a radical, geometrical abstraction with figures that are never enclosed inside the limits of a contour but open, fragmentary and constantly shifting.
