In this chaotic city life, there is a room with a window. There is an artist who experiences the socio-political effects of his society. He feels and absorbs the proximities.
Amir Raza carefully picks up the brush and paints the picture in his head. Slowly and gradually the picture turns into a subtle balance of superficial values that dictate our society . Maintaining his European style he paints a vivid view of his mind. Known for his works on major issues like Terrorism and Capitalism, he brings light towards a transformation that is happening within our generations i.e. the inability to think out of the box. He presumes there is a peripheral force that has took control over our brains, using metaphors such as parrots and elephants, he shows a growing loss of thought and meaning in his work.
Intricate skeleton drawings show death in his paintings. Animal bodies transforming into one another reaching out for something that does not exist, empty dialogues with zero effect and the emotionless bodies of humans all share a similar idea.
Indistinct symbolic figures represent a lost generation.Clearly his strong imagery shows how deeply Amir Raza is affected by the changing , dominating society norms. .
