Artist Wajid Khan spoke about his inspiration and also took the guests around the portraits explaining about his unique art form.
Wajid Khan is a name to reckon with when it comes to 3d nail art installations. Having mastered the art of hammering iron nails into a hard acrylic/PVC foam sheet, Wazid Khan has created unimaginable portraits or abstracts with fine details of facial expressions of the object.
Wajid Khan- an Indian by birth, a painter, inventor, sculptor, artist, dreamer and a designer par excellence made his first nail art in year 2005 and took around 3 years to complete it. As it’s rightly said, practice makes a man perfect- Wajid now completes a portrait in less than 6 months giving each portrait a unique masterpiece stroke of excellence. Wajid gives a 3d effect by using around 1-1.5 lakh iron nails for each portrait. So far he has created very attractive and inspiring portraits of Dhirubhai Ambani, Mahatama Gandhi, Sai Baba, Mother Mary, a horse, an Islamic calligraphy and Prime Minister and Vice President of United Arab Emirates Mohammad bin Rashid Al Maktoum.
Mr. Rashid Khan Director of Signatures Sports and Entertainments said, “Wajid’s eye for detail, his perseverance and efforts can be seen in his art work. Signatures sports and entertainment have the marketing and the agency rights to make this emerging art popular in coming years.
Each piece of art is unique and the only one on the face of the earth and comes with a “Certificate of Authenticity” and a guarantee for a century.
Speaking about the art form, artist Wajid Khan said, “It’s just hammered nails when one comes to think of it, but depicting something as delicate as human expression created with crude nails is quite challenging. One nail follows another and hundreds and thousands more, each nailed to perfection with enduring and strenuous efforts giving birth to the most amazing 3-Dimensional Nail Art Portrait brimming with personified human expression.”
Wajid Khan’s work will soon be auctioned in Mumbai.
