Artist Bio

Born in 1993 in Mirpurkhas (Pakistan), belongs to the small city of Sindh (Jhudo). I pursued an academic rather than creative path in school, I have always been fascinated by the patterns that occur in art, architecture and the natural world, drawing and painting have heightened my appreciation of them. Creating art, whether it is realistic or abstract, has helped me to see the world more clearly.

My interest and passion for creating art has always urged me to work. For me there is nothing more than center of attraction than rhythms, forms, colors and expressions as being a source to express the world in a different way. Since my school, I have always given my extra time for making origami, sculptures with mud, paintings, making things with junk materials and have continued my interest in college life as well. For my work and efforts, I was always been appreciated by my parents and teachers. Such kind of appreciation led my interest and enthusiasm  to enter  school of arts where I could work as a professional artist. During my bachelors I was Honored as judge for creative recycling by US consulate general Karachi on October 18, 2016. In January 2017 I completed my bachelor in Fine Arts From Center Of Excellence Art and Design Mehran University Jamshoro, Sindh, Pakistan. I Exhibited my work in different art galleries of Pakistan and took part in Artist Practice program at Shakir Ali Museum, Lahore. In 2018 I was selected in Jubilee Arts Pakistan and exhibited my work in versa gallery Islamabad, Pakistan. As my passion for the art enhance me to continue my art work with,I attended drawing sessions at Archway Gallery Houston. In 2019 I started summer camp named as (C)active (Creativity Active). Kids came and learnt drawing, painting, sculpture with junk and crafts. My goal is to acquire as many technical skills as I can.
