Fawad Malik

b.1968, Lahore, Pakistan. Lives and works in San Jose, California, USA

Fawad Malik has exhibited in multiple group and solo exhibitions in the US and Pakistan. Malik’s work explores the beauty in breakdown and the chaos of everyday life. His paintings are an exploration of emotions and aim to condense feelings of spontaneity, urgency, ambivalence, intuition and instinct. Inspired by Abstract Expressionism, Malik creates paintings that are raw with emotion and feelings that have the power to stand the test of time. As a healthcare worker with a Post Doctorate degree from Stanford University School of Medicine, Malik’s work in mental health plays a crucial role in his work as an artist.
