ARTIST STATEMENT:

"It is oddly weird how often we tend to conceal our human behavior. Temptation is one of those intriguing behaviors. My work revolves around various enticing activities in our surroundings, which we contently judge others for, being forgetful of the fact that we can be sinners too. My vision is that majority of human beings tend to keep their temptations private rather than exposed. Whenever you're defied or restricted, you grow more impulsive just to see what was the harm so loudly spoken about. Generally, anything which comes with a warning that it shouldn't be done becomes too much tempting and urges to be tried."

Date of Birth: 1995-06-01 in Lahore, Pakistan.
