Abrar Ahmed

Abrar Ahmed‘s enjoyment of rich coloration employed with lush brushstrokes, creates a form of narrative abstraction that dominates the composition. The layered space surrounding the subject is balanced with symbols of rhythm and nature inducted with contemporary fusion into myriad classic and folk art designs.

A self-taught artist in the tradition of Sadequain and Gulgee, Abrar has been showing his work in solo exhibitions since 1994, and his work has been well received in international group shows including participation in a two artist exhibition at the Light Gallery, London.

Abrar is a painter who does not hold a mirror to past or present times, but by freely fusing contemporary mores with tradition, his work radiates a unique perception that widens painterly observations with the joy of creativity.
