Shahnawaz has had no formal education as an artist, but from a young age, he has been fascinated towards photography. So, out of his passion for the art form, he started taking up photography as his profession.
While he is skilled with sketching, Shahnawaz prefers working with collages. He started practising this medium in 2016 as an experiment which he fell in love with. Shahnawaz’s collages are elegant, yet enigmatic through which he tries to project his individuality. They might not convey a social message, but will for sure, reflect the creative potential of collage-making.
