Hello Obaid, please tell us who you are
I am a Karachi, Pakistan based self taught 3D / anamorphic artist and muralist. I am the pioneer of 3D / anamorphic art in Pakistan. I have worked on various 3D / anamorphic art or mural projects ranging from public art to commercial art to private commissions. Most of my recent work is of experimental nature as I try and experiment to find a style of my own. I have represented Pakistan twice at StreetArt Festival in Wilhelmshaven in 2016 and 2017. I have also taken part in Dubai Canvas Festival in 2018.
What is your professional background?
I have a background in Architecture so I try and create a sense of space and volume through my artworks, all my works are 2 Dimensional but they appear to be 3 Dimensional when you see them from a particular angle.
Most of my works are experimental as I am still in the process of finding a style of my own but I generally work with optical illusions and multiple perspectives to make my work interesting.
What do you want to evoke in a viewer?
My main goal with every painting is to engage the viewer for as long as possible. I achieve that with a sense of illusion and vibrant use of colours.
My main philosophy is to enjoy the process of creation and not worry about the final product.
