ABOUT THE ARTIST

Zahid Iqbal is a talented individual who displays a multi faceted persona as an artist. Having spent his youth in Peshawar where he and his friends formed a band the passion within him led him to try his hand at various other art forms. However he joined the Pakistan army where he entertained fellow officers with a variety of contemporary and folk music in his spare time.
 
As he rose within the ranks of the officer corps his passion for things literary and artistic continued to grow. As a captain while serving in the world’s highest battlefield, Siachen, he kept his guitar with him and even managed to write songs on those dizzy heights. As a Major when he went to the first Gulf war he took his weather beaten guitar along. He composed and wrote papers on different subjects and even penned a book about his experiences as a soldier.
 
He commanded a tank regiment as a Colonel and it was after he took his release from the army in the middle of the first decade of this century that he decided to spend more time on his art. He made many sculptures which adorn his drawing room today.
His foray into fine arts is a recent development. He started painting about four years ago and to date has four exhibitions to his name. Through these exhibitions and with the help of social media his work has been well received.
 
He is a self taught artist and has had no formal or informal lessons but blessed with an analytical mind he appears to grasp an idea and convert it into an art form, be it a sculpture, a song or a painting. Zahid Iqbal plays guitar and drums and has managed to record a number of songs in Urdu as well as his native Pushto language. He has a fixation for good poetry and that is what led him to read and understand Rumi, the famous Persian medieval philosopher and poet and paint his interpretation of the mysticism and oneness with the Almighty that Rumi preached.
