Emotive figure paintings by Bisma Hussain

A selection of expressive and emotive paintings by Bisma Hussain, a talented painter based between Pakistan and Germany. She used her experience with long-time struggles with chronic pain, social anxiety, and depression to create these remarkable colorful pieces.

The gestures, emotions and compositions that are putting the emphasis on the feeling I’m concerned in portraying; the body being the raw form and paint giving it a soul. Thus, developing some language. I choose these strategies by picturing myself in different situations and being empathetic toward countless people feeling the same way for countless reasons, so others (not just artists or art experts) feel seen and heard when they look at my work.
