Mala Iqbal

High Altitude Sunset - 2009

Mala Iqbal paints landscapes which I find to be pretty epic. They may not be everyone’s taste, but I am feeling heavily inspired after discovering her work.  Her use of colours and detailed interludes draw you into the work, and she uses paint in a uniquely admirable fashion.

The Traveler

While browsing her website, I found it interesting to observe the progression that is obvious from looking through the archives.  Her style has developed from something that appears heavily influenced by graffiti and spray paint art to more organic looking landscape representations. The works included in the post are in reverse chronological order, the first image being one of most recent works from 2009, through to the last one which is from 2006.

The Jungle

Mala has both a BA in Visual Arts and English from Columbia University NYC and an MFA from the Rhode Island School of Design.  She has been exhibiting regularly since 2001. Please visit her site here to see more of her amazing paintings.
