Rashid Khan is also a noted painter in our country. He is simultaneously a figurative, objective and naturist painter. All of his images pulsate with life provocatively and dramatically. These elements make his paintings seem like an authentic part of our surroundings with all our conflicts and achievements. His figures hint at many untold stories. His thought process is seemingly eloquent and has a touch of contemplation.
Rashid scrupulously paints with love and passion, and this artistic activity helps him to get rid of all kinds of pains, agonies and sufferings. Paint allows him to liberate himself and immerse into a spiritual world. Spiritualism is very closely connected to his works and when he engrosses himself into the world of art, he transcends into a divine life. His works show no tendency towards commercialism and publicity, art brings to him a new horizon where he completely finds himself. His modes of expressions are varied but realistic and surrealistic approaches are in focus at his creations. He never concentrates on a particular subject and portrays varied subjects present all around him. His paintings are distinguished by both strong and soft shades, scrupulous strokes and mellow textures.
As an ardent innovator, Rashid has been constantly experimenting with lines, forms, compositions and textures. He always tries to create something novel and refreshing which is dissimilar to others. The painter has worked in varied mediums for exploring the ins and outs of his mediums and has been constantly exploring to get the grip of the essence of individual mediums. His dexterity has also been proven in his application of colours and textures. Sometimes texture is the main ingredient for his paintings to emerge him completely. His works include large and medium vibrant canvases as well as small water colours. He has tinted the environment, urban and semi-urban street scenes, people in varied moods, citizens, birds, animals and more. Well drawn objects, hazy figures are also noticeable in his paintings.
