'My heart lies with the study of perspectives, entropy and metamorphosis. The plan is to create things that evoke dialogue between the art and viewer'
Sameer Hazari, excels in psychedelic genre. He specializes in interactive fine art, colour theory and portrait making. His work mostly springs from the space he acquires and the people around him. Also, the relation of numbers to colours holds a major space in most of his compositions. That decides the use of hues within his frames. He majorly draws portraits and paintings, with musically inspired colours to depict patterns and perspectives. Adding to it, many of his paintings or illustrations are themed to cover various socio-economic specs of life. And all from psychedelic view point. He derives artistic inspiration from the likes of Victor Vasarely, Bridget Riley, Patrick Hughes and Salvador Dali. And explores all sorts of medium from charcoal to acrylics to express his thoughts.
