About Artist

Each artist has to strive to develop his distinct and individual visual vocabulary. Fawad Tamkanat is one artist who has done just that. He has carved a niche for himself as an artist who straddles the traditional and the contemporary with equal panache. He was born in Hyderabad in 1962, to a family that had artistic leanings, his father Shaz Tamkanat, was a well-known Urdu poet. Even so, Fawad did not take up art very early in his childhood. After he completed the Bachelor of Commerce degree, he enrolled for the Bachelor of Fine Arts and subsequently the Master of Fine Art programmes at The Central University in Hyderabad. His creative abilities were honed at this stage and he even received the University Gold Medal. A visit to Fawad’s studio is a unique experience. One can sense that he is an artist who is very relaxed about his work.

To say that Fawad Tamkanat`s work is narrative is a gross understatement. Throughout his career as an artist, he has strived to develop and then perfect a visual vocabulary that he can use to communicate with his viewers. And this language, that he uses to take on peoples` minds, has nothing to do with society, religion or politics, but, quite blatantly, is all about his own personal fixations. Fixations that include those with time, and one`s place in the general scheme of things. Fawad was born in Hyderabad in 1962, to a family that already had artistic inclinations running through its veins. His father was the famous Urdu poet, Shaz Tamkanat. Early in his career, Fawad was invited to participate in an installation workshop in Denmark where he also worked for a few months in the printmaking studios with renowned printmakers. He became very taken up with printmaking, and launched his professional exhibitions showing only monochromatic prints. Now Tamkanat experiments with several different media and surfaces, diversifying to include those like watercolours, acrylic, etching drypoint and tarpaulin in his oeuvre. Fawad has held twelve solo shows in India and abroad to his credit, and has participated in state, national and international exhibitions and group shows at major art centres
