ARTIST MUDASIR REHMAN DAR
Meet Mudasir Rehman Dar, the first creative Artist from Jammu and Kashmir, awarded in the Asia India Book of Records, famous for making the world's smallest painting of Holy Khabba on a ring stone leaf and pencil lead. He is best known as an artist and well-known painter, famous for his unique style of creative Abstract paintings. He hails from South Kashmir's Kulpora Village of Kulgam district in Jammu and Kashmir and his art gives a social message. This young, creative artist is well known for creative abstract paintings and portraits and has been carving for platform to display his talent, despite winning several awards at mega stages. The artist states that since his childhood, he was naturally attracted towards the art. "I used to make paintings with different messages. I usually tried to focus on social evils, through my artwork like an addict, child labor and other social injustices besides ongoing conflict," he said, adding that "this artwork is giving me peace of mind." He said: "So far, I have won so many awards at national, state and district levels, besides dozens of certificates." And, getting entries in Asian and Indian book of records is acknowledgement of work which creates true happiness to show his real talent. He is receiving appreciation because of his art at different mega stages, yet the support which he needs to continue his artwork from government, is nowhere in sight. Kashmiri youth are talented but they lack platforms where they can show their talent and government must look into it seriously. It is pertinent to mention here, that Mudasir is a God gifted talent who has created the world's smallest painting of the Holy Kabbah on a ring stone leaf and pencil lead. Truly, this artist we have found, through his paintings and portraits, each, tell a story of life in Kashmir and so much more. Below, Artist Mudasir Rehman Dar shares his paintings.
