Watercolor medium holds its unique place around the world and is currently the world’s most popular and famous medium. I am also a madman of this medium with my childhood. The beauty of watercolor medium is that it should be reached as its need. The choice of perfect colors, softness, quick strokes, light and darkness, the ratio of distance and closeness are the most important attributes of the medium. Visitors can tell where I am successful in that attempt. I am in Lahore since 2008, the rest of time spent in Karachi where watercolor is done very widely. Watercolor is a beautiful and quick medium and difficult for some people too. My theme comes from old buildings and old streets to portraits in Sufism. I did first watercolor Solo Show on Sufism in 2008 in Pakistan, which was very successful as well, thus the work on Sufism began in the watercolor medium. Since 1992 a series of exhibitions began and so far, many national and international exhibitions have been done.
