   "My drawings show
the world the way I
see it, and manifest
the essence of things
I have seen.

Technical perfection can be attained
only through copious production.

It was the musicians – the likes
of Jasimuddin and Abdul
Alim – whose music
Inspired me to portray
the opulence of my
country on canvas.

The most ancient
history of painting
is the history of
civilisation. I can't
think of a more
exciting medium."
