I, Mohammad Feroz Khan, was born and brought up in Delhi. I have not undergone any formal training in Art but gained experience first from my Father Late Mohd Ibrahim Khan, a Banner Painter. Subsequently, under the able tutelage of renowned Artist Late Manjit Bawa (Guruji - My Mentor in Art) I studied and learned Art for 14 years. Bawa took much care to train me to use brush and pastels on a variety of subjects, also guided me to savour the beauty and nuances of Texture. Then, as an initial step my Guru guided me through a maze of depicting worthy visuals scattered over the all too familiar places of Delhi. He asked me to draw inspiration from real life.

Deferential to my master’s academic style of figuration, I soon convinced my guru of deft brushmanship and ability to create naturalistic human and animal forms, avoiding explicit linear delineation, while projecting solid masses. I chose to see the ordinary things and scenes that make up for our everyday life. I look at the little details of a tailor working on a manual sewing machine or a street side vendor selling a cool drink on a hot summer day or rickshaw pullers or beggars and various other street vendors – denizens of the city’s poorest quarters. It is the sheer simplicity of each of these activities that appeals me and is reflected through my Canvas.

I have been associated with Saffron Art for 4 years and have also worked with Art Galleries like – Svk Art, Saatchi, Londonart and Toxtethartgallery. Also, I’ve worked with Rajeev Sethi on projects like – Expo in Germany, ‘’Silk Route’’ Smithsonian festival, Washington DC, USA and Lotus Bazaar Forum, Barcelona, Spain.
