“One thing that attracted me from my childhood was Art but due to the lack of opportunities in my country, I decided not to move ahead with it.” says Dr.Mubarak Muhammad Ali of Mubarak’s Art.
Muhammad started his art journey from school with the portrait of Sir Sultan Mahomed Shah, Aga Khan III. After that he participated in different competitions at school level and city-level and won it most of the time. But later he realized there’s no scope or encouragement of his talent and decided to pursue his career in physiotherapy.
But one day while he was searching something on Facebook, he came across his friend’s art designs which encouraged him to launch his Facebook page. That becomes the motivation for him to continue his journey.
He posted all his work on his page and small appreciation everyday boosted him to post his work on international forums.
At first he was criticized but he took the criticism as feedback and came up with an excellent version of his art with the iconic ending scene of the movie Titanic.
Now, his work hasn’t only gained popularity but has also earned a vast number of commendations under his name both at national and international level. The notable thing about his art is that it comes straight from the heart which led him to paint the real canvas of life.
More than the social issues, he’s inspired by the beauty of nature. He believes Allah is the most beautiful artist who has made this universe.
From portraits to calligraphy to painting nature’s work, his drawing and sketches have won a huge applause from the audience.
He has also been providing art services since 2013 and has also worked for international clients. He not only draws the art but also teaches and has also attended competitions as a judge.
Since he always struggled to find a good art teacher so he decided to become one.
And in today’s interview we’re honored to have him for a short QA session. Let’s’ have a look at his answers.
A little introduction about yourself?
Dr.Mubarak: I’m a Physiotherapist by profession, a self-taught artist and can also write poetry. Other than these, I’m also fond of theater acting and I also do public speaking on health and wellness issues. I also have my YouTube channel where I post my artwork, my acting snippets and sometimes travel videos.
How did you start your artistic journey?
Dr. Mubarak: I have been inclined to art since my childhood. I’d rather call it an inborn skill. But I left art when I was in 9th standard. In the third year of university in 2013 I launched my page Mubarak’s Art and that was the time when I started improving my work. I’ve also won several competitions in my school life but I’ve never thought to make it a profession one day.
Do you also provide services?
Dr.Mubarak: From 2013 till today, it’s been 8 years since my journey. I provide services to both local and international clients which includes sketching using the pencil and color-pencils medium. In addition , I also provide paintings where I work on different kinds of themes. I also do leaf art which you can watch on my Facebook page and my other social media channels including TikTok.
What inspired you to continue your work?
Dr.Mubarak: Allah has blessed everyone with a unique skill and because of that skill, you’ve more opportunities to succeed. It’s what Allah has made you for. My biggest inspiration is to take that skill forward for which Allah has chosen me and never leave it.
Who’s your favorite artist from Pakistan and Why?
Dr.Mubarak: Before human artists, the biggest artist is Allah who has created a world full of art which is the best inspiration. I take my inspiration from the beautiful nature Almighty has created.
What’s your life goal moving forward with your art?
Dr.Mubarak: I want to create a positive impact through my work. I want to highlight problems and solutions through art so people can positively think about their problems. Also, I want to make people aware about the importance of art.
Any message for the upcoming Pakistani artists?
Dr.Mubarak: My only message for the upcoming artist is to never get disappointed if you don’t get the results. Keep on working and improving yourself and the time will come because those who keep trying never fail.
