Kunwar Aamir Hameed Wani
I am a self taught artist from Kashmir. I started my art journey at a very early age. I began my art work with water colour moving onto other mediums like acrylic, oil, inks and tempera. Sometime I also use my own handmade colour from available pigments. Usually I love to work with subjects with historical significance, nature and portraits of the society. Its my ideology that is depicted in action on canvas and paper in my artworks. My artworks are sometimes contemplation of my dreams which through my Art form and style take shape and finally emerge as a reality. I am mostly focused on contemporary and abstract forms. I decided to dictate my take on the subjects which are filled with fervour and volatility. The subjects which were rarely even thought about by the other artists working in the valley have been brought to light first time by me. I most recently commissioned a collection based the Soviet Revolution. What inspired me into such a subject was the extent of energy that’s present in the Art of the Soviet Revolution which is unmatched as compared to all other revolutions of those times. The way the artists have contributed to upbringing of the infant state is immaculate. The restraints in the way of the revolution to succeed, defence from foreign invasions, devastated social life, illiteracy and hunger.
Besides the Red Revolution a collection dedicated to the Soviet Revolution I am also working on a collection about Jerusalem. Taken by the tenacity of the byzantine period and the geography of Jerusalem is what made me start this never ending subject.
