Brimming with confidence, Farhad Hussain’s paintings are a mélange of vibrant colours. Farhad’s bases his work on the realities of human relationships and their subtle complexities. Farhad’s paintings dwell on the human figure. His works are narrative with each figure interrelated to the other. Though on a quick glance, one may feel awestruck by their presence, each figure is an integral part of the work. Each having a personality, which nurtures the narrative. Farhad has chosen to use tempera on cloth for his works, the media allowing him to achieve the desired vibrancy of colours. A slow build-up of images and spontaneous flow of colour while balancing colour and composition simultaneously follow structured formatting. This meticulous planning in the composition and layout is the beginning of a process from where onwards it is very spontaneous and intuitive. Another technique used throughout Farhad’s work is the method of applying colour: dot-by-dot till the entire area is completely covered.
