Rasha Kahil




Rasha Kahil identifies with her works one on one and has gradually gained acclaim in international circles for her almost suspiciously accurate honesty.

Her art comes in many shapes and sizes, from photography to erotic fiction and video form. Her signature has become the ability to capture life’s awkward, non-glam yet truthful moments that most of us don’t really like to talk about. What’s privacy in the 21st century anyways, you may ask. Well, I don’t know how many of us would be willing to photograph the period bloodstains on our bed sheets in the morning or admit their beauty for that matter. Lebanese Rasha Kahil does, playing with notions of the conventional in such a manner that would make most people blush. Her great love of sex and sexual encounters materializes in the shape of the naked human body, which ultimately strips the soul as well.
