Artwork Description

It’s all about my new painting “Enchanted Forest” (48” x30”) which was actually revealed a few nights ago, when I was almost half asleep, I found myself at a dark place, a place of magic, natural state of wild land like a place of transformation. I looked up, and saw so thick towering and tangled trees, I felt myself being outside usual human experience and existence. It was a very different feelings that night having very mysterious silence in the surroundings. I thought probably it’s a place where people might have no access. Probably a place of threatening danger or a place of adventure. As a nature lover, I took it a place of adventure to explore so I decide to walk through the thick forest. I made a quick decision to venture deeper into the core of forest, to reveal its secrets. The forest had all the colors, the tree trunks were nut brown, blackish brown and the leaves there had all the shades of green. The grass was a little crispy under my feet, probably the fallen dry leaves too. I continued my walk slowly and calmly but carefully over the twigs crunching under my full boots. The forest colors kept on changing, from nut brown to oak brown and then to umber brown looking like an ancient forest but looked like quite primitive as well... After a little while, I heard the orchestra of birdsong… and it was the time to getting up for the birds and small animals like playful squirrels... I didn’t stop moving ahead until I came across the red forest, I mean the tree leaves were all crimson red creating a mesmerizing atmosphere. I saw the first shimmering light ray coming through the tree tops…. The soul soothing peace of the morning had started. The beauty, the fresh organic fragrance, the wetness all over started comforting my heart… Was that a dream or what ? I couldn’t figure it out... the whole experience convinced me to paint “Enchanted Forest”... I came to my art studio and started painting it before my dream diminishes and my thoughts get evaporated. After the initial work, I went back to sleep... woke up next morning so fresh with a great feeling to paint with a cup of tea... and then completed in due course of time... it took time to make the depth of the forest and its intricate details but I came out so well.     View more of our Contemporary artworks and Old Masters artworks

I always say that “one morning, I woke up and I was an artist”, I explored myself to be an artist and I started making paintings and was lucky enough to get the initial breakthrough and then to be recognized and accepted in some segments of people spreading my art all over the world in a short time. God probably chose me to proliferate my art for spreading out happiness, joy, colors, peace, meditation and as per my art admirers kind of healing to make this world more beautiful. I put my heart n soul to create something unique and heart touching too. I work in acrylic and make modern and contemporary art.
Art has always been my passion as I have yet an interesting story in this regard.

When I was a teenager , being a musician and a singer back home, I used to make abstracts posters of Beatles, Led Zeppelin, Elvis Presley in water colors and to display my artwork at a store in a big mall in my city of Lahore. Each evening I used to have a fairly good amount as my “Pocket money”, an old times term.

Yes! I believe in quality therefore I always strive hard to get the qualitative materials to glorify my art..
Each painting has a story, concept, a perspective and a theme behind it which matches the title I choose to give.

I have diversity in my art, probably because I am not following any artist and trying to find my own ways leading towards my destiny which is still unknown, which can be seen in my paintings like you can find , abstract art, cityscape, modern abstract and contemporary art, landscape, abstract nature art, sometimes floral, geometric art and seascape as per my mood as well as on demand of my buyers.
