Ahmed Mohammed

Ahmed Mohammed has a compulsion to draw which involves a cyclical gestural drawing process.

Ahmed Mohammed has a compulsion to draw which involves a cyclical gestural drawing process. Since attending Venture Arts he has discovered his artistic identity and developed a creative practice which spans textile art, printmaking, ceramics, drawing, and multimedia

Working in a purely abstract way, in his large scale works he uses oil sticks to intuitively create expressive expanses of colour and form. In his printmaking pieces he creates bright blocks of colours that he gives titles such as Chicken Drumstick, Chicken Burger or Ice Cream and Spoon. All of his work incorporates bold and assertive mark-making in a spectrum of colours.

Ahmed was one of the selected Venture Arts studio artists to have two Whitworth Editions prints. These are available at The Whitworth in their gallery shop and online.
