SM Naqvi acquired his four-year diploma in graphic designing from Mashkoor Art School in 1999 during which he won Quaid e Anam Competition Award and also received first prize in Dr Luther Martin Art Exhibition Competition. He was also one of the students of Iqbal Mehdi. To polish his artistic talent he started portraying worth seeing sights and natural beauty besides his own expressions on the canvas. Today his abstract paintings are admired all around the world. His paintings are put up in many exhibitions around the world including USA, UK and Dubai. You can also find his paintings at Clifton Art Gallery Pakistan.
In his artwork he takes liberties, in altering color and form in ways that are conspicuous and achieve total abstraction that bears no trace of any reference to anything recognizable.
He explores the bold use of paint surface, brush strokes and intense color as he produces emotionally charged paintings that are reactions to and perceptions of contemporary experiences. He has used more vibrant tone of colors and hues that are not used usually in abstract paintings by the artists. He also used such colors that make other colors spoil when used together in a painting. But he used them with such a skill that the outcome is brilliant. Browse all the SM Naqvi paintings below.
