Based in: Karachi
I began my formal art training studying graphic design at the Fine Arts Dept. Punjab University, Lahore. Served the advertising industry for more than 30 years leaving in 2016 as a Creative Director Design at JWT, Karachi. Although I’ve been painting off and on during all this period but my full devotion and thrust in the work came from the day I departed the advertising world.
Since my school days geometry remained one of my favourite subjects. I have always been attracted to this form of art because of its main ingredient – the crisp and neat simple lines turning into unending magical formations. When I started out as an art student I was looking closely at the art, artefacts, and architecture of both western and non-western cultures. While living in Lahore, Pakistan – a city rich in culture and history I had all the opportunities to visit, see and feel attracted to the beauty of Islamic art, architecture and geometry in details. The simplified beauty of a single geometric form always allured me to create something exciting and different with a refreshing modern twist. In each of my paintings you'll come across a symmetrical, proportional and balanced arrangement of recognisable shapes coming together, generating a myriad of stunning designs that captivate the viewer with a kaleidoscope of visual interest. An interesting manipulation of vibrant colours and light makes my work pop out as a stunning piece of art.
