Prash Sankhé~ Featured Artist
Prash Sankhé comes from a family of artists. A talented artist himself, he has pursued the study of Fine Arts and holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts (BFA).
He has painted in a variety of mediums and settings, but now focus’s manly on painting horses.
In the Arab world the horse has been at the cornerstone of life and culture and symbolizes power, grace, beauty, nobility, strength, freedom and vitality. The black and white theme dominates the artist work. While black embodies the mystery and the secretiveness of the night, white signifies the light and vitality of the day. A subtle but definitive approach towards the clash of negative and positive spaces in a painted canvas is attempted.
