Artist S t a t e m e n t I am an artist but never consider myself just a painter or sculptor, though largely but not exclusively my work comprise on paintings however in my past and present work the notable different is from tradition to contemporary, concrete to conceptual and construct to abstract. When I think of art or personal art I would prefer it to represent inner stimulation, catharsis and as a medium of expression on any surface with any means but it has to be pure, when some thing comes out from deepest thoughts its creates a massive impact on it viewer. I always produce work profound and personal which depicts only those facts, emotions and realities which I came across in my daily life and mould them into work of art using best of my skills. This transformation can be in the form of conceptual or contemporary or even some time in a very traditional format. Nevertheless all forms of my creativity contain sensitivity and sentiments. The existence of innovation and freshness is the key for my creative endeavours, for instance; my calligraphic tree sculpture has utmost novelty and spirituality. I took an inspiration by Andy Goldsworthy work, as he impressed and takes influence by nature and the objects in its surroundings. Therefore when ever I look at the trees I found various sort of shapes on them whether its tree it self or its twigs, leaves, roots etc. I wonder why so far no one has ever chosen them as a support for their sculpture. Trees got like millions of infinite shapes of twigs on them like stimulated and bold brush stokes of a painter. Each tree has its own story so why not we portray it at some extent right on its own self, probably in calligraphic form of sculpture; it’s like nature embracing art. Even my sculptural installation has quite intensity, depth and capability to take and absorb variety of materials which ultimately generates a new art form. The idea is to gather stuff from disastrous areas for instance; flood, war or maybe earthquakes affected territories, and then exhibit them at some reputable art space to raise money and help victims of such catastrophic situations. My art ventures not only limited till three dimensions but my abstract paintings have colourful and vigorous appearance too. My abstract paintings differentiate colours and their movement; in my understanding each colour has its own collective individuality and freedom. Therefore I want to depict the colours in a variety of meanings, these meanings relates to each colour and point out their nature for instance; “red” is a colour of action or fast motion same as black for hate and blue for greatness and strength. Nevertheless its not just paint and colours that provide my abstract thoughts means for catharsis but my abstract mosaics has a capacity to absorb more materials and ideas very differently. From my Contemporary installations to traditional paintings, from my abstract mosaic to undefined art forms, every medium represent my personality and the persona of my life experiences and their intensities.
