Artist Statement

IconCaretDown

Stained glass windows of Alhambra Palace, Granada (Spain) and the vibrant designs and culture of Morocco is reflected in this piece. It is a combination of modern geometric abstraction with the tradition of Islamic art, highlighting the true concept of hard-edge art style. Through variations in sizes, shapes and the use of soft and hard colour tones, these interlocking and overlapping elements create the illusion of depth and produce an aesthetically pleasing and visually eye catching compositions that captivate the viewer with a kaleidoscope of visual interest.

Artist Profile

Hometown: Karachi

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 my favourite marks producing subject in studies. 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. Each of my paintings is a symmetrical, proportional and a balanced arrangement of recognisable shapes coming together to generate 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.
