FRI, SEPTEMBER 13TH - EXCLUSIVE ONE NIGHT SOLO EXHIBITION
DC ACCENTS BY SARDAR AZIZ
"As an immigrant I came to DC as an outsider, but the friendly nature of the city soon made me feel at home, more at home then I ever felt in any city in Pakistan. I am entranced by the beauty of the city. The graceful spring when flowers drip from trees like a paradise. The chilly fall rains reflected in the streets. The heat of the summer and the cold snow in the winter. I love the contrast of the beautiful Potomac River, the stateliness of the monuments and the international architecture of the city. But most of all I love the people. The great diversity of people who live in and visit this great city. This is what I tried to capture in my DC Accent paintings."
Sardar was born in a small village in Pakistan in 1971. After studying painting at the Lahore Arts Academy in 1995 he began painting professionally. Sardars style was impressionist, using oil Paint and pastels. In 2007 he relocated to the United States and settled in the DC Metro Area. For three years Sardar absorbed the new beauty and culture and combined it with his continued in depth study of light and movement. His style evolved into a mix of impressionism and realism, using oil paints, and painting much larger than previously. www.sardargallery.com
