I was commissioned by the management of Karachi’s first Alternative Energy Park located under the Hyderi pedestrian bridge at Hyderi, North Nazimabad and painted a 50ft long graffiti on the biggest outer wall of the park. Project was initiated by Abdoz Arts, and it was Pakistan’s 1st Graffiti Stand-off as 5 graffiti artists including me painted 4 walls of the park including mine. Very good & fun experience.
Painted Banksy’s famous Caveman on request by the owner of this new burger joint “The Chosen Bun”, which opened to public on the 18th of May 2014. Its located at 4th Street, Bukhari Commercial Area, Phase 6, Karachi.
Patients’ Welfare Association’s fundraising event ” PWA Bakesale 2014″ took place at Civil Hospital on the 16th of April, where I was invited as a celebrity guest and 3 of my paintings were auctioned at the event. All the money from this annual event goes to charity to support needy patients of Civil Hospital.
I have pioneered Bboying & Graffiti in the past now I proudly pioneer CalliGraffiti in Pakistan as well. CalliGraffiti is a combination of Calligraphy and Graffiti. CalliGraffiti is special to me because I was born in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia & I feel a strong connection with that land & also because I love writing Arabic.
So as my first mural I have chosen the first word of the first verse that was revealed of the Qur’an, “Iqra”, which means “Read”.
“Read! In the Name of your Lord, Who has created (all that exists)”
On the 16th of August I painted 2 graffiti murals inside the IDA RIEU School & College for the Deaf & Blind, Karachi, as a part of the charity event Kuch Khass, an initiative by Namra Khalid, an alumni of the CAS school, which was also supported by students of CAS, Lyceum & Karachi Grammar School. Always a pleasure to spread love & positivity through my art.

Painted this 50ft graffiti on the 14th of August, Independence Day of Pakistan, on the biggest outer wall of Karachi’s first Alternative Energy Park located under the Hyderi pedestrian bridge at Hyderi, North Nazimabad. Project was initiated by Abdoz Arts, and it was Pakistan’s 1st Graffiti Stand-off as 5 graffiti artists including me painted 4 walls of the park including mine. Very good & fun experience though I think I need a new hand now.
