Waheed Nasir is currently working as a 2D and 3D CG artist for a production/animation house, Post Amazers, in Karachi, Pakistan. With a fine arts background and a 13 years' experience of painting and teaching fine arts, Waheed held his first exhibition of paintings and drawings in 1994. Up to this day, he’s held 5 solo exhibitions, locally and internationally, and has taken part in more than 12 group shows. His artistic path has always been very straight and simple. "I love painting what my heart says and only do it when I get completely involved in my subject. I like remaining close to nature and I always go after purity », he explains. We are really proud to meet this fascinating artist and we hope you’ll enjoy this moment.
Waheed Nasir : To me, there is no difference. I follow the same rules for both my traditional paintings and the digital ones. Being both visual art forms, the same elements must be taken into account: composition, division of space, textures, colors, tones, mood, focus etc. I believe that if an artist paints with all his heart, the work will move the viewer more deeply, which is for me, a big thing to achieve.
I.A - Waheed, your artwork possesses very particular colors and light. Do you think it comes from your environment or is it just a personal interpretation?
W.N. - It has nothing to do with my work place or where I live. It has to do with my nature and something called pure taste. I've always liked strong contrasts, drama, mystery and mood. I appreciate art that has that. It's why my favorite artist is Carravaggio. To me, every color is beautiful and has its own properties and charm but you have to know how to use them: how to handle their tone and saturation and near what other colors to place them. Light, is another very important thing. It changes everything, including our mood. I love the mystery it can convey, the charm of a chiaroscuro. Thanks to light we can see and it's only thanks to light that we can get shadows, which help to add a lot of drama in a work and give weight and solidity to subjects.
