See Dr. Mohammad Ali Bhatti’s colorful and soothingly chaotic new paintings in the new Roots to Revolution exhibition at Archway Gallery from Saturday, August 1 through Thursday, September 3, 2020.
Bhatti’s latest series of paintings is deeply inspired by mysticism and the connections between divinity and mankind in the modern world. He draws on the energy around him in creating his paintings, making intuitive responses to the variable sounds, melodies, rhythms, and textures in the classical music he listens to while painting.
In addition to his recent works, Mohammad will also be displaying some of his portraits, watercolors, and Southwestern paintings.
About Dr. Mohammad Ali Bhatti
Bhatti is an accomplished contemporary expressionist painter, who concentrates on themes that are inspired by the mysticism, people, and current social issues around him. Born and raised in Pakistan, he attended local art institutions in his native country at an early age; subsequently, he travelled to the United States and earned an MFA from Edinboro University of Pennsylvania and a PhD in Interdisciplinary Arts from Ohio University, Athens, in 1998.
In his early career, he was inclined toward figurative art and became a competent portrait artist. Gradually, his fascination with contemporary abstract expressionism led to inspiration by mysticism, fantasy, and current socio-political conditions.
For the last 30 years, he has painted and exhibited around the world with 35 solo exhibitions. His work is unique and is collected world-wide.
