His paintings exude a light that emerges from within. His figures are languid and flow gracefully with the overall schema of the natural world that they inhibit. Khan essentially draws his subjects from the wide base of Indian mythology, religion and folk lore. His eye for details and commendable mastery of line make his style unique.

In the words of the artist - My medium is tempera on paper or canvas. I use the traditional method of tempera painting which goes back to the Indian Miniatures, though the material I use is totally contemporary. Seven to eight coats of transparent color are put on the surface, one after another to get a complete tone. Then I put in lakhs of hatchings and stipples using a very fine brush which gives the work a grainy texture. Knowledge of the wash paintings allows me to create a soft, twilight effect on the artwork.
