Anjum has been painting for over a decade now. She works with oils and watercolours. Her style goes from realism to abstraction. She enjoys playing around with the knife and loves the rich texture and the lustrous effects one can get with the knife .Her imagery is simple and conveys a form, which is at once creatively vibrant, yet effectively simple. She often surprises and surpasses herself while being open to the unexpected. Memories and previous experiences become fused with ever new questions that arise during the process of creating her art.Her works are a myriad of colours and bring about a drama on the canvas through the reds, yellows, orange and blues. The hues on her canvas have an almost lyrical quality about them - and her colour palette has only got more buoyant over the years. She works without any preconceived ideas and her paintings are made using many layers of texture and paint. She is full-time artist with a desire to create and capture earthy textures, bright bold colours and rich subtle layers of color in her works. In fact, her work can now be called a combination of realism and abstraction.Anjum has studied abstract art at NAFA Singapore and also holds a degree in fasion design from Mumbai India. She started out as a fashion designer playing around with fabric, colour & texture. But destiny had other plans for her. It seemed like the most natural transition from fabric to canvas. And once she took up the paintbrush, there was no looking back.
