ARTIST’S STATEMENT:
My paintings are the result of an OERB (Obsessive Experimental & Restless Behaviour). Due to my restless nature I work simultaneously in different styles and subject. Perhaps I don't have a particular style or maybe I am still searching for it ……..or maybe I just enjoying the journey towards the unknown. I don't know what I want but I am quite sure what I don't want. I strongly feel that a painting should depict an artist not a style.



Kaay’s passion for art never faded and for the last ten years his main focus has been painting.

Date of Birth: 2018-02-09 in Karachi, Pakistan.

Qualification: In 1988 Kaay graduated in fine arts from a renowned Arts college in Karachi
