I am trained as an Indian, Mughal and Persian miniature painter with a background in decorative arts of Asia and the Middle East. I use traditional methods, materials and techniques in my work with trans-disciplinary approach. Most of my work embodies mystical dimensions and delves into metaphors and persuasive narratives that are peculiar to South Asia and the Middle East. My training in the UK was in Visual Islamic and Traditional Arts, where I was taught a great deal of other World’s great art traditions including icon painting, Italian renaissance painting techniques along with gilding, marbling, calligraphy and making of paper and natural colour pigments. My usual art practice revolves around my training in Indian, Mughal and Persian Painting techniques. From making my wasli paper to squirrel tail hairbrush and to grinding of pigments, I prepare most of my materials by myself. My art practice has moved on from one level to another, where I am now experimenting with new media and cutting edge technology (touch interactive trans-media storytelling).
