Artist Statement

Lahore is a city where I have been living since my childhood. I have a spiritual affiliation with the old history of this great city. Lahore is my romance and I try to describe the story of this romance through spontaneous strokes of my brush. I enjoy to experiment with the use of different colours, modes and atmosphere in my painting.

Date of Birth: 1966-07-20 in Lahore, Pakistan.

Qualification: Master of Fine Arts (with certificate of merit) in 1993 from the Department of Fine Arts, University of the Punjab.
