My name is Rashid, a self taught artist. I was raised to be humble and my Dad RIP used to tell me to be "Be short and sharp to the point", it is difficult for me to boast about my skills, but I will try to give you a short background about my artistic side of the story. I have been painting since at the age of 12, Painting is my passion, luckily I live to paint (excuse the pun). I started with water painting landscapes and portraits. I wanted to persue a carrier as a painter, but my Mom had strong objection about that and forced me to focus on my studies (thank god I did that). I accepted my mother's advice and graduated with Masters degree in Computer Engineering from Mid Sweden University in Sweden. Although I always continued to paint as a hobby I worked as University lecturer, Telecom Engineer for more than 18 yrs. The art industry is the only one that still has the 18th censtuy mentality unlike all other sectors. Only few greedy people are in control.
