Artist Statement

“To see color is a delight for the eye but to see black and white is a delight for the soul”
Andril Cauldwel

This is Lahore my life and my work is its soul. Lahore’s crumbling facades is a reminiscence of its
Glorious past, its labyrinth full of daily life routine ,is need to be recorded and conserve before it completely disappear.
My simplified expressional work is a direct message to bring in the much ignored issue. It is a tribute to Lahore, to its heritage, and trust for future generations.

Message Let’s Celebrate! Unique Lively Lahori - life style and its Mystic Aura.
