I had to do still life today which I don't like so much. This is the result :=(

Bury me and I shall still live

Bury me, lock me away
stash me underground
Still I shall breathe
Still I shall live.

The garden fairy & other women

1. Garden Fairy

She just appeared, and refused to leave.
And if I refused to paint her,
she would cast a spell over me.
Turning me into a tree, or a leaf,
or a flower.
I don't really mind,
But if that ever happenned,
I would never be able to leave.
To be myself again.
The garden fairy awaits you,
She is the reason why you lose your way.
Will she help you find your way back?

2. Red-faced woman

Don't mess around with the red-faced woman. She's got snakes on her head. She is not Medusa, but just a very angry woman!

3. Pregnant woman meditating

All paintings in acrylics on paper, 37x55cm.

Letting go...

Medium = acrylics on paper, 37x55cm.

It's not always easy to let go, the pain, the suffering, the tears, and the unfulfilled dreams.

Veiled women

There are many such women in my country, and they are beautiful!

1. Shy

2. Bride

3. Fully clothed

I am suddenly having this obsession about veiled women. Or is it just about the 'veil'. They're very beautiful ones, especially in South Asia.

I once visited a place called Quetta, in the southwestern part of Pakistan, in a province name Balochistan (it borders Afghanistan and Iran). The Balochs are a minority and are often marginalised. It's military rule and daily curfews as well.

The women are hardly seen but they stay at home and sew 'dopata' veils as colorful as these. They do it for months -sometimes it takes up to six months to complete one.

So every veil from that place has a story. A woman's story.

These are painted with acrylic on paper, 33x26cm.

Goddesses of my dreams...

Meet the goddesses in my dreams...they appear during my most deepest, saddest and painful moments. During times like these, I just use inks and stabilo and bleed my bloody art paper with the colors of my thoughts.

1. Goddess of the red sun, yellow moon and blue skies

2. Goddess of the garden, of butterflies and flowers, of spring

3.Goddess of the flame, of seduction, of heat and eventually torment

4.Goddess of pain, of blood, bruises, and of courage

5. Goddess of the bleeding heart

6. Two faced goddess of the bleeding heart

7. Red faced: The goddess of hot passion, of blood and anger

8. Black faced: The goddess of the night, of silence, tranquility, and sometimes bad dreams

9. Green faced: The goddess of the earth, of the trees, skies,and of envy

10. Goddess without a name

Every face tells a story

"You're hot"

'You burn me'

"Coming out of you"

"I am missing you badly, my hairy bodied man..."

'When will we meet again?'

Tackling society's issues in Art

Here's a collection of artwork done by me, trying to express my thoughts about our society issues:

[Special thanks to Jennifer Mourin for scanning my art pieces so beatifully!].

1. Dedicated to those who are forced to love in secret, because you come from different ethnic or religious groups, nationalities or social status, or simply, because you have different skin colors.

2. Do we just look at people or we look down on them? Society always does that, especially to those who are different from them.

3. How many trees do we cut while they are still growing?

4. Despite the fancy clothes, the colorful cosmetics, the plastic surgeries and the veil, aren't we all the same inside?

5. Is she lonely, sad or simply restful? Some women simply love to be alone.

6. It's no fun to live in a concrete jungle - cold,comfortless,hard,careless.

7. Going back to nature is the best. Where you can explore your true, naked self.

8. Hey, what are you doing with my best friend?

9. We are always wearing masks to overcome society's pressures, no matter who and where we are.
