Earth Metal by Yousef Bahzad explores themes of erosion and manifestation, and the notion that the land itself shapes people, and subsequently, people thereon shape the land.
According to Yousef Bahzad, he approaches his paintings “through expressive abstraction and a tinge of the surreal through a lens of mystery which invokes questions within the viewer.”
Yousef Bahzad is a Qatari-American visual artist. His practice consists of mainly painting and experimental photography. All his art forms supplement and feed into one another, with regards to tone, colour and imagery. He maintains and builds upon a visual mythos which consists of past drawings, paintings, and photographs to harness in the creation of new artwork. Through this visual mythos, he explores personal and universal human themes. Bahzad was a resident at the Fire Station (2017-2018) and at the International Studio & Curatorial Program (ISCP) (2021).
