Statement

Ahmed's works break away from centuries of painting traditions in both medium and content. Influenced by graffiti and industrial materials, he uses permanent industrial solid paint markers and metallic paints to paint on vinyl and other unconventional materials. His paintings depict correlations between preservation and destruction. He constructs existential visual narratives induced by conflict and intensity.
