Ahmed Khan, born in 1938, is thought of as Pakistan’s greatest living calligraphic artist. He has enormously varied talents in the genres of sculpture and designing as well, but his calligraphic work has attained a legendary stature.
Ahmed Khan illustrates his art philosophy in a masterly fashion. He has perfected a unique and intricate process which gives his paintings a mystical, magical quality. Each painting is unique in its own way. In his own words Ahmed Khan explains; “In my works I have used calligraphy as a design element. I deal with purely abstract forms, something beyond spiritualism. When I started painting, I wanted to do something exceptionally extraordinary and original. I have created my own vocabulary for my creations.”
