Welcome to the kaleidoscopic world of my digital painting, birthed from the chrysalis of the pandemic lockdown, and flourishing with Procreate, a boundless universe of creative possibilities.
Sharbat Gula (Afghan Girl), 2021
This digital rendition of Sharbat Gula, the 'Afghan Girl,' is more than an art piece – it's a dialogue. Using Procreate, I illuminated her defining feature – those expressive eyes. But, my true aspiration with this work goes beyond artistic exploration. I hope to invite the viewer to appreciate Sharbat Gula, the person - not merely the iconic 'Afghan Girl.' In this digital narrative, I want you discover her spirit and story interwoven with my strokes, thereby connecting with the artwork and the extraordinary woman it represents.
Conceived in 2020, this piece celebrates color's transformative power. I've wielded Procreate to unfurl a tableau of bold strokes and vivid colors, painting an arresting subject that underscores the profound impact of color in art. My hope? That it becomes a beacon, inspiring viewers to appreciate and explore the immense beauty that color injects into art.
