“Lettering creates readable art that comes to life, displaying a quirky, whimsical nature.”
– Peggy Dean
It is very aesthetically appealing, the creative gene was there since childhood. After completing my BFA, I did a master’s in business administration. It’s a real sporty journey.
3 years ago I started painting commercially and the response has been overwhelming. The dots linked together themselves and connected me with arts thereafter, Alhumdullilah!
We evolve as an artist on daily basis or each minute. My work has been my own motivation for keeping me intact with my exploration of experimentation of different mediums and font styles. For me, innovation is a constant ongoing strategy of creating. I have a mix of contemporary and modern styles of work. I keep on discovering new styles and mediums.
Be original and have your own, unique style of work. PLEASE DO NOT COPY OTHERS’ WORK. Invent into your creative abilities and skills. In this journey, you will find what you do best and try to do that with as much originality as you can. Trust me on this, it will be fruitful in your own journey.
“It is better to fail in originality than to succeed in imitation.”
– Herman Melville
There’s no boundary when it comes to creativity. Artist is always open to creativity, regardless of time, place, or other reasons. Time has never been an obstacle for me. You create something when you have the urge of creating something, as simple as that.
“If you hear a voice within you say, ‘You cannot paint,’ then by all means paint, and that voice will be silenced”
– Vincent Van Gogh
ADVICE TO EMERGING ARTISTS
The simplest answer is to follow “Modern Art Solutions” to gain important advice from professional artists.
The list is infinite. But my biggest inspiration and influence has been none other than Mahjabeen Atif. She’s a heart of Gold and steel.
My career has chosen me I think. We get along quite fine. past years of hard work are seemingly paying me off nowadays. Its basically vice versa
Always say “yes” to everything that comes your way. Do not let DOUBTS surround you.
It totally depends on how you manifest your workstyle. It requires many years of composing your own original style of work. You grow upon every composition. Then the day and time come when you can say “I am a professional artist with a certain style”. That’s where your authenticity and originality comes into play. Originality will ultimately inspire curators and collectors.
Totally depends on the size, text, and mediums. It’s a long debate and a long effortful journey to put a price on your own babies (Paintings).
Many. My most favorite nowadays is a gold leaf!
