Contemporary, Mixed Media & Islamic Artist
Born in Pakistan and brought up in England, I love both of these countries.
One is back with my roots, the other is my home. I knew from a very young age the intense passion I had for art, when a few colour pens and some blank bits of paper were everything to me. My constant sketching and doodling were precious moments in my childhood that I never gave up on, even in times of doubt, and never will.
I attended Art Colleges, University and other art courses to learn more and enhance my creativity, and yet today I still strive for more. Many years of learning and experimenting have helped me to create my own unique style and identity. I can simply go on forever exploring endlessly with anything to do with art.
I finished with a Graphic Design degree as to make myself commercial with an earning.
Hence I do my own graphics, advertising and promotional work for all my artworks.
In my early career days whilst studying I did also spend time travelling around the world to free my spirits and creative mind.
This enabled me to capture all the true beauty of colours, nature, cultures and life of everything around the globe, that I could inject later into my art work. Travelling around the world did much more than just intensify my creativity and art passion, it made me appreciate who I am, and what I have and how fortunate I really am in life.
My goal in life as an Artist is to be the best I can, to inspire, motivate, bring out the positivity in myself and others, share my experiences and help those that are less fortunate than me in life and show gratitude and appreciation to my creator. My projects and concepts are not about the end destination but rather a fascinating visual and creative journey.
