The Creative Qualities, skillful handling of media, intellectual response to the technique are the salient features of Shafique Farooqui‘s paintings. Creation of new worlds, with or without familiar objects, is a valuable and visual experience. His continues progress and struggle in various fields academic studies from landscape to Journey of lines, Colors, Shapes and lines are arranged on Canvas in a vibrant composition. The shapes suggest drama and movement by creating sense of space, while the lines gives the dynamic force and rhythm, like Paul Klea. Taking a line for a walk is Farooqi‘s unique style. He is going to have a great influence on the new generation of the Artist.
Chief Artist PTBB ........................................ALIVE- ‘‘Having life ‘‘ not dead or inanimate; still in existence, force, operation; active; knowing or realizing the exisstence of; sensitive; marked by alertness and activity
The above is Webster’s definition of a word, while at the same time, for me, it is about the most accurate way I can think to describe a man, SHAFIQUE FAROOQI is truly, alive.
Whether this quality causes him to be an artist or whether being an artist deeps him "ALIVE’’ I know not. I do know that it is a rare privilege to spend time in the company of such a man of the countless ways the creativeness, talent and life within him chooses OT show itself, his art; the calligraphic paintings, watercolors and his land scopes, seems to do it strikingly. From the movement of his brush strokes to the range and variety of moods created by the choice of colors, one has to life by doing so. It is this city’s distinct honor to have, even for a brief period, the work of so gifted a man in its midst.
