1. (Untitled) Mixed Media  This piece shows an abstract interpretation of a world map, with a background of different historical maps. (Background description from upper left corner clockwise): A portrait of Amerigo Vespucci, the man whose name "America" derived from, an excerpt from Fra Mauro's 15th century world map, a Chinese nautical map from the 15th century, a portion of the London Underground map, a Mughal map of the Eastern hemisphere, (in the center) a part of the first railroad map of France, (in the bottom left) an ancient map of Tenochtitlan, and (above that) a small part of a 16th century map of Augsberg, Germany.

2. Introspection Pen and ink This piece was prompted by a class assignment to illustrate our identity through the combination of drawings and words. This was the first time I tried portrait abstraction which I combined with a detailed illustration of a bird on the left side, implying the potential to fly. I then incorporated a small excerpt from an Urdu poem by Ahmad Faraz as my family, especially my father have always considered Urdu poetry important.

3. Cyrus the Great Graphite This piece is a historical study of the great Persian king Cyrus the Great. He founded the ancient Achaemenid empire, uniting the Persians with the surrounding empires.  Two flying creatures are depicted in the Persian style to accentuate and complement the greatness of his presence.

4. Untitled Pen and ink This is a continuous line drawing done on a National Geographic map I attempted to incorporate the lines of the map in my own lines that I drew. A woman is depicted in a serene pose, looking off into the vast ocean.

Another Lost Generation: Series of Refugee Children Around the World:

5.  Innocent (1/12)  Acrylic, newspaper This piece depicts a refugee girl whose innocent face is juxtaposed against the harsh newspaper reports that slander refugees for "invading" and "destroying" the West. I hope to help deconstruct anti-refugee sentiment by making people realize the impossibility of this innocent girl doing anything like the harmful things the newspaper headlines accuse her of.

6. A Refugee's Journey (2/12) This piece attempts to encapsulate the events and sentiments of a Syrian refugee whose life is turned upside down by their war experience. (Shown clockwise from bottom left): Children playing in front of their homes, plane bombing those houses, fleeing family, crossing a fence, journey in a boat, getting out of the boat, children playing on a hill overlooking their refugee camp. Again, this piece aims to bring awareness to the hardship and suffering of refugees and inspire people to help and support them to find a new home if they cannot return to their own.

. Ikhlas Oil pastel I created this artwork with the intent of conveying a unique message based on the theme of sincerity through art elements and principles in an oil pastel illustration. I wanted people to feel the innocence of the boy within themselves in order to motivate them to be the best Muslim they can be, for if a young boy can pray, they can as well. I was also influenced by Khalid Shahin, a modern calligraphist, to create the version of Ikhlas written in the background.

8. Hurry to Success Acrylic I created my very first acrylic painting with the intent of conveying a unique message based on the theme of the race against time. The goal was to portray an elderly man making dua alongside a young boy doing the same to reflect the fleetingness of time. I want the viewer to ponder the inevitable passing of time in their own life. Surah Asr is written on a plaque on the right to emphasize this message. An oriental painting gave me the inspiration for the overall, tranquil aura of my own piece, as well as the color scheme.

9. Tribute to Junaid Jamshed Mixed media I created this upon the recent passing of a famous Pakistani singer turned evangelist, Junaid Jamshed. His old band music and later religious naats were extremely important to me growing up and I felt he was an crucial part of the Pakistani identity.
