To watch Wahab Jaffer painting is a joy, because in a very special way each painting is in itself a performance, and each performance confirms what we might suspect: that nature seeks to express itself through some of us.

There's that very mysterious element in Wahab's colours, you must look for it under veil after veil of vivid hues, Carnival, Revelry, and Merrymaking. It's Christmas in Wahab's art, its joy! its a feast of light and colour!

Wahab Jaffer began painting in the early 70'S and took guidance from Ahmed Parvez and Ali Imam. Largely self-taught, he has studied alone and intensely, reading, visiting the art museums of other countries and studying first-hand the works of old and contemporary masters. Through the years, he worked himself progressively to a new aesthetic standpoint, achieving a personal style in which abstract and semi-figurative form is combined with vigorous colouring.

Looking at Wahab Jaffer's works, it seems as if he has succeeded in creating a truly emancipated community of colours in which variety becomes the basic form of cohering perception and vision. Colours bloom with pleasing spontaneity, often catching and reflecting the incandescence of the sun, as if painting for him is a haven, the paradise promised to him on this very earth.

Wahab Jaffer doesn't look like an artist. He could pass for an art collector. He could be a diplomat, and he looks a consummate businessman. However, the truth, as he feels it, is different. While he is actually all four, he prefers to reverse the order. He would be recognized as an artist first of all, and the last thing he wants to do is business.
