about artist

Naqsh was born in Kairana, Utter Pradesh in 1938, moving to Karachi, Pakistan due to the partition in 1947. He studied two years at the National College of Art in Lahore but failed to complete his degree. He depicts both Muslim and Non-Muslim elements amalgamating from India and Pakistan. He infuses the divinity and fragility of the feminine form, depicting them with grace and peace often incorporating pigeons and doves. He links Western Modernism with miniature techniques along with Cubism influences. His horses have been deeply inspired by Italian, Mario Marini. He has exhibited extensively in Pakistan, India, the United Kingdom and the UAE.

Naqsh lives and works in London, United Kingdom.
