This two person show at Art Chowk recently evoked a lot of interest as it combined with miniature style figures and symbolic imagery and interpreted in different ways by the two artists.
Every picture canvassed speaks thousand words. Every person has its own way of interpreting it. But when it comes up to the creator of the painting, he has the best perspective to it. For some people, a simple line drawn by an artist may mean nothing to them but for its creator it has a whole new meaning and dimension to it. He can describe it and bring meaning to it. Art cannot be summed up to mere paintings and drawing of pictures and sceneries. Even slightest of shades on the canvas paper that has a meaning can make it a symbol of excellence. It is just that one needs to have that eye to feel and get the essence of that work. It is the artists who know the real value of an art.
Irfan says about his art.
My work “The Power of our Words” revolves around the basic mode of our expression, words, they can move you to tears, evoke absolute joy or lead you in action. There are words of encouragement, of sympathy, of love & admiration. The right words can give you strength, define your faith, and give flight to things that live in your imagination.
In my illustrative paintings surrounded by the harmonious expressions that portraying the imagination and faith in right words that can be a source of nourishment to the souls. Words will inspire us, cut us, and they have a power to bring us back to our lives.
