About the Artist
Shaukat has been interested in flowers since his childhood, and has spent over 30 years either in botany, making herbal products such as teas and aromatherapy oils, or cultivating and painting flowers.
Most artists paint flowers purely for their aesthetic beauty but Shaukat paints the parts other artists tend to ignore or simply do not see! It is the inner parts of the flower such as the petals, stigma and stamen that arouse Shaukat's interest. The abstract flower paintings are stunning, exciting, and wonderful to behold.
Since living in Spain the tranquillity of the rolling hills, olive tress, orange groves and golden sandy beaches has brought the magic of Mediterranean beauty to Shaukat's paintings.
Shaukat supports both Seeds for Africa and UNICEF with his art as he is totally dedicated to helping the educational welfare of the children so they can have a better life.

ART FOR EDUCATION & SKILL
I am on a mission to educate poor children in rural parts of Pakistan so they do not become victims of illiteracy, poverty and be deprived of any opportunity of a better life.
I believe that a person who can read and write will be able to learn some useful skills and be a good citizen, hence enjoying peace, prosperity and no violence.
Illiteracy breeds poverty, deprivation and violence and that is what we see today which has become a major global issue of our time. How true it is that? Give me a boy of seven and I will give you a man. By Shakespeare. I am selling my paintings and their awesome art prints to establish schools and skill training centres. So, your support is vital to the success of this important project. I would appreciate it if you can e-mail this page to your friends and encourage purchases of Awesome Art Prints for this noble cause. I hope to receive your order today! Watch this space for the progress of this project.... ĎArt for Education & Skillí. Your participation is important to me, if you are a teacher or an expert in computer and other skill training programmes and could spare time to go abroad to train young persons on a volunteer basis then please contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org
