Kulgam, Oct 2: A youth from South Kashmir’s Kulgam district who is known for creative abstract painting and portraits and has won several awards so far is craving for a platform to keeping the momentum going to display his real talent and to teach others as well.
Mudasir Rehman Dar (26), a resident of Kulpora village in Kulgam district is a “god-gifted” talent and an artist who has won hearts of thousands of people through his art work as he has the ability to even paint world’s smallest painting of the Holy Kabbah on ring stone and a leaf.
Mudasir said since his childhood he was naturally attracted towards the art. “I used to make paintings with different messages. I usually tried to focus on social evils through my art work like drug addict, child labour and other social injustices besides ongoing conflict,” he said, adding that “this art work is giving me peace of mind.”
He said: “So far, I have won so many awards at national, state and district level besides dozens of certificates. However, I am still waiting for a platform where I can show my real talent.”
Mudasir said that he is getting appreciation because of the art at different mega stages but the support which “I need to continue my art work from government is nowhere in sight.”
In his message to the youth of J&K, Mudasir said that youth must not get involved in futile exercises but struggle hard and that they can achieve any goal of life. “Kashmiri youth are talent but they lack platforms where they can show their talent and government must look into it seriously,” he said—(KNO)
