Muhammed Ali Bhatti

As an artist and as an art professor, I have been committed promoting visual arts by practice and teaching art, exploring new dimensions in art aesthetics and research in art history. I have been teaching studio arts and art history in many international universities and represented by several reputed art galleries around the globe. I have an MFA in painting from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and PhD in Interdisciplinary arts from the Ohio University and currently living in Houston Texas. In my contemporary paintings, I initiate with bold and unidentified shapes, interchanging forms, contrasting shapes evolve through preconceived images. Multiple layers, juxtaposition of exotic forms and visual interest are heightened with chaotic interplay in the empty space asymmetrically; elements move freely in an anonymous space. Calligraphic forms and symbols denote diversity and unity. Spontaneity and complex forms tends to be the connotation to everyday chaotic life and rapidly changing world in the modern times.
