About The Artwork

“Scrutiny” series came to my mind when I was in search of something that would satisfy my emotions, brain, and creativity. I was worn out and tired, in search of a subject. I followed the heart, wherever it led me. With careful observation of Dervish and its history, “Scrutiny” came into a creation that is very close to my heart. Each painting is made with a different mood capturing a strong connection of viewers with the visible direction of the theme through Quotes written on a few and the rest left for the viewer’s imagination. Scrutiny series is created to enlighten the walls of many. Looking Past the Obvious, Close Observation & Engagement Of The Subject Is My Process Of Creation. Prints can also be done upon your request. Please feel free to reach out at You can also reach me on Instagram at qazi_shaharyar
