Usman Khalid

My name is Usman Khalid and I am an artist based in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. I graduated with a degree in Fine Arts; majoring in Miniature Painting from National College Of Arts, Rawalpindi in January 2016. Right after graduating, I began working on my own projects at a studio that I have set up at my home.
Since then, I have been a part of a many group, two-person shows that took place in Islamabad, Lahore and Karachi. I love to experiment with different mediums and surfaces. I work with mix media and concentrate on high contrast monotone imagery; in which color is minimally used. Since I've studied Miniature Painting and have always had an eye for intricacy; I tend to view and implement everything in that manner.
"God is in the details"
My interests keep on changing and I keep on exploring different dimensions and possibilities. A world between the real and imagined; is somewhere I would like to be at this point in my life. I prefer drawing to be supreme. The idea of envisioning something in your head and thus giving birth to it; on a piece of paper or fabric; is anything but ordinary.
