Budding Artist: Farjumand Sadiqi
Baramulla: Meet Farjumand Sadiqi from Kanispora Baramulla who has carved niche at her young age as a budding artist with her distinctive style of paintings. A student of 11th standard Sadiqi had a taste of painting and drawing from her childhood. It’s her love for this art form that despite having minimal resources and negative academic appreciation Sadiqi kept hold of her art practice. Along with art of painting and drawing Farjumand sadiqi is also an emerging writer, who has complied a yet to be published novel and a series of poems.
From multifaceted paintings to Kashmiri folk tales and folklores which are now forgotten, Sadiqi as an amateur writer in this conflict ridden place also wants to write about the worsening situation of Kashmir valley. She said that her elder sister has been very supportive and contributed a lot in her journey of art so far, besides her parents who also played their key role in encouraging her.
Sadiqi mostly does abstract sketches depicting Kashmir conflict, with occasional portraits and paintings depicting culture and beauty of Kashmir.
“I have not formally got any training in any art school but art is in my blood. Thanks to Almighty I am improving day by day,” Sadiqi said. Adding that, “There is lot of scope for art and art in itself is a vast world and I hope I can contribute my bit,”.
Sadiqi wants to get a chance and platform to exhibit her art works. She is presently studying in Government Girls Higher Secondary School Baramulla.
