Artist Anwar Husain

Anwar Husain

A sensitive mind, Anwar has always painted his inner expressions and clearly belongs to that rare genre of artists who paint what truly is their calling. In the last 20 years he has been painting, he has created a distinct base of collectors and art connoisseurs who have been following his progress and new works. Anwar has worked on several themes till date which include a series of paintings on Indian Classical Musicians which is done with his own special rendering of overlapping colours, creating a variety of tonality and movement through lines and textures.
A series of paintings on Old Havelis (Mansions that were once an abode of the royals and wealthy), a series on life and times in a city, paintings of school children and their childhood....

Anwar's Goa series paintings created a degree of permanence, portraying the feel and flow of life with all its colourful nuances and experiences. In his paintings on Mumbai series, each work bears a stamp of sensitive treatment of the subject and his inner feelings coming out gently on the canvas.... Anwar was born in 1975 in a small village called Budhgaon, near Sangli, surrounded by the nearby princely states of Miraj and Aundh. His favourite mediums are Oil & Acrylic on Canvas and Watercolour on Paper. Anwar's palette of colours brings a breath of freshness to all his paintings.
