I graduated from the National College of Arts (Lahore) in December 2006, and my whole experience involving art and painting evolved tremendously during those four years. My work is a continuation of what I had done for my thesis project except I see it in a different light to what it originally was. There is a certain evolution of an ecological awareness and using different elements from nature as to say colour, form, shape and texture, the product comes forth. The entire structure is a mixture of my inner thoughts and the sub-conscious, and through a lot of layering and use of colour, I can portray what is actually going on inside my own mind. Each layer is like a fresh insight, a method that penetrates into the underlying truth of what I feel is both within me and around me. They tell a story, an untold story, one which is a discovery for viewers and surprisingly, for me.
