Sultan bin Fahad (b. 1971) considers art as a journey between intangible memories and tangible cultures. Throughout his abstract drawings, paintings, sculptures and installations bin Fahad’s central theme and object of concern remains material culture in his native Saudi Arabia. In his practice bin Fahad reinterprets history, stories and narratives with the use of material culture; he transposes these narratives to contemporary means as a reassessment and personal take on Saudi Arabia. Themes central to his practice revolve around reimagining found objects, Islam and Saudi history and identity.
Bin Fahad’s solo exhibitions include #Frequency at the Alda Fendi Foundation, Rhinoceros Gallery, Rome, Italy (2020) and Qounot,’ Alàan gallery, Riyadh (2016).
