Abdullah Qandeel

Biography from Auctionata

Abdullah Qandeel was born in 1988, in Saudi Arabia.  Abdullah Qandeel lives and works in the hip hotels of Manhattan, or in his studio on the Spanish island of Mallorca.

Qandeel is the son of a Saudi-Arabian investor, and was educated at an English boarding school.  He later attended the Royal Military Academy Sandhurst, where Prince William was also trained.

Since 2010, Qandeel has been working as a freelance artist.  His collectors include renowned personalities such as Charles Rockefeller, the actor Cuba Gooding Jr., and members of the royal family of Saudi Arabia.

Biography from Sotheby's Doha
"Abdullah Qandeel's paintings stand like intense emotional incidents, unleashing his deepest primitive part and emptying the stored emotional energy.  His soul travels through deep layers of rough strokes to find yours in this highly intensely personal visual diary."  Eve Therond cited in: Exhibition Catalogue, New York, Richard Taittinger Art Salon, Abdullah Qandeel, 2013.
