Teakster is a multi award-winning artist and photographer. His artwork has been featured in publications and exhibitions across the USA, UAE, Europe, and Asia.
Teakster started his artistic journey as a form of escapism from mundane corporate work. Inspired by his Islamic faith as well as by Islam’s early art and calligraphy, he started experimenting with colours and patterns which he combined with his artistic skills to produce the intricate digital art that he is known for. Teakster still enjoys experimenting with different styles in his artwork and believes that ‘cosmopolitan artwork’ work can be a bridge between different cultures.
He has collaborated with such renowned artists as Haji Noor Deen, El Seed, Peter Sanders, Samir Malik, Nadia Janjua, as well as with the new generation of emerging artists.
