Syed Shariq Ayaz
I am a visual artist predominantly working in the genre of painting. My focus in painting mainly revolves around the experimentation with the surfaces by using multiple mediums and symbolic representation of theme that my work generally carries.
My work speaks about the existential crisis in this mortal world and the state of internal conflict which becomes an everlasting struggle for all of us in attaining true contentment.
Through symbols and metaphors, I try to build my narrative in such a way that allows everyone to interpret the story in their own way based on their own experiences. I do not try to reach answers and solutions but it is an attempt to only pose questions to encourage critical thinking.
