Having fallen in love with the city, he decided to make London his home and returned in 1995 to realize this dream. Here he studied media production and computer graphics.

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.
