Rahil Sheikh

Rahil Sheikh My print work aims to be rhythmic and graphic and increasingly I am interested in mental techniques to focus energy and spirit into each cut rather than on thinking too hard about perfecting the image itself. Often the work has a relationship with a piece of poetry. I see a [...]
