about Feroz Khan
I’ve not undergone any formal training in Art but gained experience first from my Father Late Mohd Ibrahim Khan, a Banner Painter. Subsequently, under the able tutelage of renowned Artist Late Manjit Bawa (Guru ji - My Mentor in Art) Bawa took much care to train me to use brush and pastels on a variety of subjects, also guided me to savour the beauty and nuances of Texture. Then, as an initial step my Guru guided me through a maze of depictable visuals scattered over the all too familiar places of Delhi. He asked me to draw inspiration from real life. Deferential to my master’s academic style of figuration, I soon convinced my guru of deft brushmanship and ability to create naturalistic human and animal forms, avoiding explicit linear delineation, while projecting solid masses. I chose to see the ordinary things and scenes that make up for our everyday life.
