The inspiring illustrations of Shahul Hameed
Shahul Hameed hails from the city of Palakkad in Kerala. He started painting at an early age and he immediately realized that it would become a real passion. His family is in agriculture, and the idea of pursuing a profession in the arts was not compelling enough for them. However, over time, they accepted his work. He received no formal training in drawing and painting apart from certification at the Madras Government Technical Examination (MGTE).
Like any artist, colors are a crucial part of his work and he carefully picks and chooses the colors he uses in each piece.
“I believe that colors create a dialogue between the artist that I am and the viewer. »
He draws his inspiration from everyday examples and he likes to represent them through his visual dimension. He wants to create a sense of familiarity and nostalgia in his audience by keeping themes simple, but at the same time adding a personal artistic touch. Through his art, he wants to capture the emotions of a moment he has witnessed or experienced, and return them to the viewer in such a way that he can also share them.
He believes that art has various effects on the viewer and on some level they find a connection to what they are exposed to. For some it may be the color palette that draws a sense of similarity, for others it may be the subject itself and there are those who perceive a totally different parallel in my paintings. . On several occasions, people came to see him and shared a point of view on his work, which even he had not observed. “It's gratifying to realize that my art has touched people. »
