KULGAM — Mudasir Rehman, an artist from south Kashmir, has been producing some really interesting paintings from the last couple of years. He has beautifully managed to depict the pain and suffering of people through his artwork.

From a remote area in Kulgam, known as Kulpora, Mudasir Rehman Dar developed interest in painting at an early age. “I liked to play with colours during my school days and as years passed, this became a passion for me,” he says.

Mudasir, who used to sign his paintings with the pseudonym Shahid Mudasir, says that he couldn’t carry on his studies from higher secondary level. He says, “Due to some problems at home, I had to quit studies. Then, I thought of following my passion as this came naturally to me.”

“I got many awards and certificates after participating in painting contests. My paintings have been displayed in many states and out of country as well. Recently, my paintings were showcased in World Virtual Museum,” he says.

Despite being so talented, Mudasir has to do menial jobs in order to support his family. He laments, “I didn’t get any support from the district administration nor any NGO.”

“These paintings help me express myself to the world, more specifically on social media and this is my only motivation,” he says with a brittle smile.
