Meet Rashid Patel

Rashid Patel had a love of art from an early age and gained his first relevant qualification with an A level in Art at secondary school, then moved on to study Fine Art at Gloucester Art College.


What does your work comprise of?

My work is comprised of all subjects, from the inanimate to living forms using a range of medium – pencil, pastel, acrylic and oil.  However, my passion has always been toward figurative and portrait works in oil.

For me there is nothing more captivating than a living form and the most fascinating and beautiful are human beings.

When did you first get into art?

Like many children I started to draw as soon as I could hold a pencil. At secondary school Art was always my favorite subject; painting or drawing would help me relax and put me in a world of my own, filled with imagination and creativity.


How would you describe your style? 

I like to experiment with creating a vintage look, mainly using a variety of earth colours to give an appearance of an old sepia photograph. With this style of image I find notable figures in the music and film industry, past and present, make an ideal subject.

I enjoy working on more than once piece at a time – moving between paintings allows time to reflect and consider adjustments and drives my motivation to continue painting.

My painting touches a variety of styles including realism, impressionism and a hint of pop art. My work has been exhibited at Waterside Fine Art in Stratford upon Avon as well as local art festivals.
