Born in Karachi, he graduated with distinctions from the Karachi School of Art and has been an artist for over a decade. He studied under the guidance of Eqbal Mehdi and has also worked with Sam Abbas as an artist.
He has participated in various group exhibitions and has also held solo shows in various Karachi galleries. Salman has worked on several murals for private collectors and has done commission work for Pakistani and Irish clients.
Salman’s work exudes a refreshing energy, his forms are skillfully stylized and simplified into spontaneously created geometric configurations, where smooth lines overlap and traverse the canvases with ease. The paintings are well balanced and the energy floating around captivates the eye while rich color palette and bold compositions help create brilliant effects making the paintings aesthetically pleasing.
Although he is known to experiment with realism and modernism, his current work of landscapes focuses on impressionism and it is this that has garnered him further acclaim and recognition in Pakistan.
