Mashkoor Raza is one of the most prominent artist from Pakistan who started his career in the early 1980s and has been honored by the President’s Pride of Performance Award which is the highest award in Pakistan. He has several signature subjects but in a variety of moods his sublime sense of design, colour, form and space sets him apart. [read more] Mashkoor's bold colour schemes, abstract forms and well-designed compositions have drawn accolades from home and abroad. His work has been seen in exhibitions in many countries around the world.
Mashkoor conveys a very forceful statement through his use of vibrant colours and contrasts whether it is in his figurative, abstract or calligraphic work. In 2007, Mashkoor Raza was accorded the Tamgha-e- Imtiaz Award for Art. His versatility is exciting including cubist structured abstract works with the emphasis on shades of white. When Mashkoor paints impressions of galloping horses, manes and hoofs flying, they appear about to gallop out of the frame. Mashkoor Raza has also worked with figurative narratives, fragmented forms gracefully juxtaposed with symbolic suggestions and contrasting elements.QUALIFICATION 1972 Diploma in Fine Art From K.S.A.
