Taskin Butt

Artist Bio

Taskin Butt has been drawing and painting since childhood. She works across various mediums such as oils, acrylic, and mixed media and has worked with pen/ink. Her landscapes are a reflection of her external worldly experiences while her abstract works are a reflection of her inner intuitive experiences. She derives her inspiration to paint from everyday life and the beauty and grace of nature around her. Her emotions and feelings dictate which colors and shapes are brought onto canvas resulting in multi-layered abstract and figurative images. Through her dynamic use of colors, vibrant paintings take life. When she paints, she follows her inner voice, her intuition flows, and playful soulful landscapes merge with multi-meaning abstract. She loves variety and does not follow any specific trend but has created her own distinctive style. As she follows her intuition the paint almost paints itself, and her trust in the painting process creates momentum that sustains the entire painting journey. Her work reflects her free spirit and intuitive and spontaneous vibration. It celebrates her love for nature and at the same time expresses her inner experiences through paintings that evoke a sense of serenity and spirituality, influencing the viewer in a positive and healing way as some themes she expresses include freedom, hope, renewal, and connection. She has been selected to be represented by the Rossocinabro Gallery, Italy, Monat Gallery, Spain and Monteoliveto Gallery, France. She believes learning in art is a limitless journey with never-ending possibilities. She aims to continue to grow in her artistic journey and her ultimate aim is to have her art shared and make someone smile or move emotionally through her work. When Taskin is not painting in her studio, she is meeting other artists and visiting new places. She currently works from her own studio in Nairobi, Kenya.
