This week we welcome visual artist Raquib Abdal Khabir. Khabir, who is in his early 50s, hails from New Haven, Conn. In his youth, he was active in the graffiti scene, creating burners and tags. He cites this early experience as the reason he chose to pursue art.
In Khabir’s practice, collage becomes a powerful vehicle for social commentary combined with a striking palette and compositions. His work has been shown locally as well as a recent solo exhibition with Design Festa Gallery in Tokyo.
