 A self-taught maestro, Anwar Khan's journey in art began not in the bustling metropolises but in the quieter town of Gwalior, Madhya Pradesh. There, driven by an unyielding passion for painting, he pursued a National Diploma in Fine Arts in 1985. Over the years, Khan has carved a niche on the international stage. His artistic voyage has seen him showcase solo exhibitions almost annually from 1986 to 2003.

Travelling to different parts of the country helped him find inspiration in different ways— from the life of shepherds to the solitude of cities.
