Aamir Khatri, born 1968, a textile designer by profession did his first drawing, using the card cover of a notebook as the canvas when he was only three years old. He is a keen observer of human feelings and behavior and uses this talent profusely in his art. Painting is his passion. He feels proud when he paints, especially something to promote peace. Aamir liked to do water colour. He experimented with portraiture, landscaping, abstract and impressionism but wildlife has been his favorite subject. He is proud of his association with Eqbal Mehdi, a remarkable illustrator and artist renowned for his line etchings and paintings. Sanctity of the line and etching is a sacred trait that he got from the legendary painter Eqbal Mehdi. It was back in 1984-86 that Eqbal Mehdi guided Aamir Khatri. It was Iqbal Mehdi who infused life in his art. Long time back, his method of painting with water colour was interesting. He would soak the sheet in water, allows it to dry a little. Then he quickly applied the pigments and finished it off before it dried up. In this way, he created the required tint. Cotton swabs and brushes used to be his basic tools. Now he works with oil paint, combining abstract and impressionism. So obviously, his oils show emotional restlessness mingled with mental distortion of humanity in all walks of life.
