The Hashim Akib Collection
As far back as he can remember Hashim always painted, encouraged as a child by parents who nurtured creative thinking. Having left art college, Hashim pounded the streets of London with his portfolio, he found an illustration agency to represent his work and started producing artwork for magazines, book publishers and design firms. Hashim won various awards for his paintings and exhibited at London's Mall Galleries, with the Royal Institute of Oil Painters, and the Society of Marine Artists. His approach to painting has changed over the years from extremely detailed work to a much bolder, freer, impressionistic style. His first book on acrylic painting, published by Search Press, entitled 'Vibrant Acrylics' was published in 2012. He is represented by various galleries nationally.
