Pakistan is a land of colors beauty and talent. Life exists in its natural atmosphere and great exposure to withering mood of Mother Nature. Being a painter I love to live and work over here representing the true picture of this great land. I have absorbed the beauty of this land on the canvas of my imagination. Poverty and hardship in life boost up my spirit to do more better work. I take pride to be an ingredient and identity of great Pakistan. How lovely it is for a painter to live and paint without social discrimination on the basis of language, religion and region.
All the forms of art communicate less or more but a painting done with the purity of heart and soul can move this world emotionally and psychologically. I feel love, peace and harmony in romantic and classical dance of natural splendors ; songs of nightingale in spring, whispering breeze of summer, calm weather of winter and withering colors of autumn. What a wonderful piece of land on this planet of earth where human beings are struggling for bread and butter; imposing wars on other nations in the name of peace and making others fool by achieving their materialistic goals.
Me a painter doing nothing but presenting a true picture of Pakistan through tiny stocks of inspired brush in different layers of paint on my canvases. My paintings are the life, passion and pure excitement………that my sensitivity to penetrate your heart, one way or other.
It is right to enjoy this world, it is right to love God because He created it. I constantly look for the beauty, love and harmony around me in the city of gardens Lahore. Nature smiles at me when I pass by. She smiles at everyone who passes by her. She does not have discrimination. Love Nature, love life and give open hearted expressions to your emotions. Whatever fields of life you own.
