Abid Hasan is a graduate from Karachi School of Art and he chemically treats gold/silver leaf to create his paintings. These paintings are painted on canvas with chemical process of laying thin silver/gold leaf on the surface. He uses oil colors in different hues and keys which respond to the prepared surface. After completing his work he uses varnish to give the final effect. These mixed media paintings have brilliance and tactile quality which possess unusual images – rarely found in abstract expressionist paintings.
