Times of Youth: For those who don’t know about you and your work, can you tell us a little about yourself?
Syed Nauman: My work describes a beautiful yet horrible view of a person’s life & the circle of his thoughts and imagination. I love to work on incompleteness & imperfection, stillness in the hustle bustle of life, strokes of rage & revenge can be clearly seen from my work, my personal artwork defines the conflict between inner core of reality, feelings & fantasy of world caused by the cruelty of people living in here & sensitivity of nature who viewed this beautiful world.
Syed Nauman: Nature has always been my inspiration from very childhood. I spent most of my time outside playing in mud & woods which added sensitivity by keenly observing the cycle of nature where Sufferings & tragedies also sparked my interest in arts as I found it the best way to express my rage, anger, stress, what I feel, how I see things, how I want to see & feel them, where most of people wont understand.
Syed Nauman: Biggest challenges of working in Pakistan strikes you when it comes to a proper platform where you can express and display your work. Lack of awareness make it more difficult to interact with people through your art, only big cities have the very few platforms & its a struggle to reach there. But now because Internet artists here are interacting and collaborating in art projects, workshops and discussing their ideas and sharing experiences, its relatively easier.
Syed Nauman: In next 5 years I see myself as a Concept Art artist. I’ll be working on some personal concept art project, designing some characters and products expanding my span of work and expressing ideas I hesitated to work on.
Syed Nauman: I’ll like to deliver a message through this platform to all the people reading this including my fans/followers, that Never give up. If you have an inborn talent or you have passion you’d love to follow, from the core of your heart with all dedication and consistency work for it, earn it through your hard work, it doesnt matter in what region, profession, situations & circumstances you are in, it all depends on your dedication towards it. Failure is never a hurdle, its a challenge to boost you up when you fall and I believe if you truly want to achieve it, you can do it. Just believe in yourself!
