Qasir, you have a personalized artist statement you’ve always shared with your audience, please share this with us?


I was without direction. The meaning of life is hidden. My spirit was wandering around in the dark. I prayed to 2ALLAH to show me the path of truth and purity of essence. My quest ended when I put my soul in the Art World.

I’m freely using all the techniques and medium of expression to paint life imbued with love and peace. With each brush stroke I employ the old and digital gear. I display the different shades of feelings and fantasies. It’s just the beginning, only a long journey ahead to be accomplished in the Art World.

  1. I enjoyed reading this interview much, and the chain of art genres practiced by this artist made me feel like I was reading about myself from a view point not mine. I am equally a practitioner in several fields of the arts but never as organized. He appears to negotiate his creativity between the many arts he practices with much ease, and to that I cannot help bowing in respect. May he flourish more and more in his beloved creative fields.
