Description

About the artwork
Jamel Akib's work is striking in its sense of movement; there is energy and vigour as he captures a bird mid flight or a dancer pirouetting. The initial sketched marks are often visible in the final painting and convey not only the vitality and potential of the subject but also the artist’s hand at work.
