Artist :Salman Farooqi
Graduated with distinction from the Karachi School of Art and has been an artist for over a decade. He has studied under the guidance of Iqbal Mehdi and also worked with Sam Abbas as an artist.
Farooqi’s work exudes a refreshing energy, his forms are skillfully stylized and simplified Into spontaneously created geometric configurations, where smooth lines overlap and traverse the canvases with ease. The paintings are well balanced and the energy floating around captivates the eye while rich color palette and bold compositions help create brilliant effects making the paintings aesthetically pleasing. While the lines tend to be delicate, the colors are bold. However, they do not negate the impact of the lines because the artist applies the paint in thin layers and maintains the clarity of the brilliant hues.
Although he is known to experiment with realism and modernism, his current work of landscapes focuses on impressionism, and It Is this work that is bringing him further acclaim and recognition In Pakistan and abroad.
