In this clip we pay a visit to the studio of the artist:
Work by the artist can be found in the permanent collection of the British Museum.
Geitani often paints with acrylics sometimes adding additional materials such as glitter and even rust.
Bassam Geitani work is a great example of contemporary art. The artist does a great job at creating patterns that repeat, not exactly but very similar. Geitani reminds me of another artist sometimes focusing on the process of creating, Damien Hirst.
