‘Time is a Healer’ from the Golden Collection 2008
Contemporary & Islamic Art
by Established International Artist
Born in Pakistan, brought up in England, I love both of these countries, one is back from my roots, the other is my home.
I knew from a very young age the intense passion I had for art from my creative abilities.
I attended Art Colleges to Universities just to add those extra techniques to my talent.
I finished with a Graphic Design degree, as to make myself commercial with a earning, but then truly realised, that money did not really mean everything to me.
If I couldn’t follow my heart and soul purpose in life, what was the point of me doing something just for a good income.
I did however enjoy my career as a Graphic Designer and have no regrets, the good was, it prepared me for all the things I need to do as a succesful artist today, the bad for me was, I did not enjoy the intense computer work that went with it and the little creative freedom I had, due to deadlines!
I soon chose to free my spirits and creative mind by travelling around the world, just to capture all the true beauty, the colours, culture and life of everything around the globe, that I could inject later on into my art work. Travelling around the world made me appreciate who I am and what I have, and how fortunate I trully am than others.
My goal in life now is, as an artist to think about others, share my talent, and use my talent to make a difference to those lives who don’t even have water to quench their thirst, nevermind have any kind of opportunity to show any of their hidden talents!
So I believe I am here on this earth for purpose.
A purpose to make a difference. I want to pour all my energy into what I love and have a huge goal and purpose behind being a artist.
I also intend to raise funds through my art work to get fully functioning water taps to as many of the poor countries where needed, most have pipes underground, but no money to get taps connected, that would give them a constant supply of fresh drinking water and save many lives.
Without water in this world, nothing would survive, not man, not nature, not land. I feel for those who haven’t even got the simpliest things in life, things survive just a little longer without food, but without water, what is there left?, nothing!. I have the talent in my hands, so I am going to use it with love to help others, then I am a truly happy artist with a soulful purpose in life.
