I feel his professional inquisitive searches of the human mind have greatly influenced his style of painting, lending an aura of mystery and abstraction to his creations. In my opinion his paintings should be looked at in deeper context. There is definitely more to his paintings than meets the eye. Visually the use of color and composition of indescribable shapes have an almost hypnotic effect on the onlooker. I seem to sense traces of many past masters such as “Elgaoeco” whose elongated figurative shapes created a sense of weightlessness. Here, Asim Amjad gives a hint of human shape in somewhat mystic surroundings. Although his approach to painting rapidly changes from constructive strokes of color to pointillistic seuraisk tones, he has maturely handled the clusters of synchronized color strokes bringing in disturbance as well as the feeling of calmness simultaneously which is an unusual combination tugging at the subconscious. I rate Mr. Amjad’s paintings as a visual Sufism. I have great respect for his endeavor and feel he can achieve great heights in his painting career as long as he does not deviate from present conceptual objectives.
Your work speaks volumes and I found yours work very sensitive and reflective.
Excellent modern paintings and perfect professionalism.
