Ali Sajid’s work shows the world of landscapes and cityscapes with celebrations and cheerfulness of history and beauty of a city reflected through the colours.

A.Q.Arif’s work is a depiction of historical buildings with their toms and minarets painted beautifully. The courtyards are shown in their true subdued colours with intricate detailing of human form. The mesmerizing affect of the surrounding of these buildings creates an enchanting feel with shadows and silhouettes adding fascination to the overall scenery.
Arif Ansari, though explored many mediums but his heart was set on water colour. He experiments beautifully with the versatility and the smooth flow of the colours as they merge on his master pieces. For Arif, nature has been the main attraction as continues to be drawn to it. His subject matters are mostly uncharted forests and the surrounding areas. The beauty of the rivers, trees and horizon are beautifully captured through the use of mesh of colours. The façade of place set amidst the grey road and green trees is one of the masterpieces that stand out for its true beauty.
