Hurain Masoodi

My life is an abstract art, I the brush, paints are in my soul, artist is my heart.When I was a 5 year old child, I used to grab a pencil in my hand and used to paint my masterpieces on the walls of my house. Surprisingly I do the same activity today but the difference is just one, earlier I used to paint a fiction world, the world of cartoons and now I paint my life. Around 4 years back, the time when my grandfather who was very close to my heart died, some disturbing elements came into my mind. They were not letting me of think of something else. They were trying to talk to me. That is when i decided to feel them. I dipped the brush into my soul, communicated with the captivating elements and created the first painting of my art series namely,” AIDAH” .It means the one who is returning from heaven. I am addicted to the script I write. Every time I talk to the elements before painting a part of my life. Sometimes I dream my painting. I am more comfortable with acrylics. Today I have over 40 paintings, each having a unique story. I usually don’t plan things in advance. I just let it happen, sometimes waiting, sometimes wandering around until the right moments arise. I have realised that I don’t make these paintings but they have carved my life and art is my only friend.
