Afshan Quraishi – Artist says, “I had a very enriched childhood, with my mother a poetess and my father a sportsman, their marriage was truly one of creativity and discipline, and ultimately influenced my passion for the arts. Since my youth, I was encouraged and mentored by Azeez Azmi, the founder of The Fine Arts Society in Kurnool, India, and I thrived as an artist under his guidance. My career ended once I got married and moved to Dubai, but the joy of motherhood filled my life, until, with a blink of an eye, both my children became adults and moved away. This left me feeling lonely and lost, I missed my children. So I began drawing sketches of them, which steadily grew to me seeing the world again through the Artist’s eyes –everything was alive, everything became inspiring. I started capturing them on canvases and before I knew it, the pain transformed into painting, and I found myself again”

“You will always have ups and downs in your life; things are in constant motion all around you. There is no way to escape change.

“I believe strongly that Art shapes our World both internally and externally. Art & culture are very important aspects of every one’s life. In fact, many people grow to be the people they are based upon the creative culture they are exposed to as children. Being able to express through art means that you are truly able to express who you are deep down. Creative minds are innovative minds.” says Afshan Quraishi

The showcase will run from the 2nd of October till the 30th of December at the Bourn Hall Fertility Centre in Dubai.

All of the works will be for sale, making it an ideal opportunity to purchase original artwork at reasonable prices.
