Born in 1990, Hyderabad, Afza Tamkanat art engages with an array of socio-political issues. Daughter of one of Hyderabad's better-known artists, Fawad Tamkanat, Afza picked up the brush at a very young age. As she watched her dad paint, Afza says she would also pick up crayons and sketches and paint on the walls and on bed sheets. Her art can be perceived as bold, like her incredibly independent mind. In her own words, “I don’t hate you, but I respect me. Your comments, your opinions do not define me. I do not care what you think about me, because I don’t think about you at all. I cannot improve my work when I am surrounded with negative energy that only tries to bring me down… I let my work speak for itself.”
