Shaista Momin

Shaista Momin

My name is Shaista Momin. I am a self-taught painter. I believe that artist's first inspiration is beauty, human faces and their expressions. All these aspects used to attract me which is why I decided to make portraits in my own style. I work under the supervision of various famous artist like Momin who is also my husband. At the age of 20, I professionally started doing illustrations for some local magazines. Alongside this, I continued my education in graduate philosophy. In 1993.

I made pen & ink sketches for well known magazines. I left my job in 2008 and start doing figurative painting. I always saw a great strength in women who tolerated the pain while still smiling. In my opinion, a woman is nature's most beautiful and complete creation. In my paintings, the elements seen with the women are in a way related to or are a symbol of freedom of speech and the desire to be free such as a pigeon or a flute. While the jewelries are those chains which give a woman the deception of beauty, but, in reality, they are restricting them from being free in our society. The women that I draw reflect the pain of slavery that they have been bearing from centuries.

My medium is acrylic on canvas, and I do it in a reverse process. I enjoy working in this style. This is just the beginning of my journey in art. My destination is far. It is more suitable to say that there is no destination for an artist. We just must continue this journey till our last breath.
