Abdullah Ali is a self-taught artist from Lahore who started painting commercially in 2009. His favourite style of painting is figurative work; female form as his preferred subject. Through his work he has explored and captured the many expressions and emotions of a woman. He has recently started experimenting with different styles in Arabic calligraphy, emphasizing the Alphabet, simplicity of form and highlighting their pictorial patterns, translating the Arabic alphabet into exquisite linear rhythms in numerous styles of script. The work is absorbed with vibrant coloration; the compositions are simple, modern and balanced with the scripts accommodated within a scheme of rhythm and flow without additional external element. In 2018, one of his works was sold at an art auction organized by The Citizen Foundation in Dubai.
