An Artist to Raise
I am a Fine Artist based in Karachi-Pakistan who works in drawing, painting and crafting. I am, an alumnus of University of Karachi, was awarded Gold Medal for securing 1st Position in MSc. – Applied Physics(Electronics). I was initially employed as an Application Engineer in a corporate but later, drove my career towards the art world due to deep passion in it.
At early age, I brought out my talent by carving candles and indulged in as a self-taught artist. Gradually, I have been involved in refining my skills through various certifications, training and workshops from multiple institutions.
My biggest challenge is to manage time and money between home, child and my art.
Many thing i want to learn all art but this time specifically prescriptive details, realistic and 3D drawings.
It is a great site to help artist and students who want to learn from home, Drawing Academy is providing a great platform.
I want to win this competition because i want to learn ore and polish my skills.
I opt conventional media for transformation of my ideas including oil paint, oil pastel, soft pastel, water colour, charcoal, graphite, pen and markers. My practices mostly concentrate on landscapes, still-lives and figurative which recall simple pleasures in our daily life. My paintings have been exhibited in numerous art fairs. However, I also participated in various contests and ultimately won some of them.
My crafts have an expression of South Asian cultural values and its social exposure. I carves aluminium sheet with domestic traditional patterns. So I want people should see my work they will love my art and must vote for me.
