About the Artist
Long Island artist Saeed Ullah was born in Peshawar Pakistan, in KPK Province. He earned a BFA from Peshawar University and went on to earn his MFA from the same University in 1985. He joined Pakistan Television Corporation Peshawar Center as Set Designer. He became Chairman of the Department of Art & Design at the University of Peshawar and after arriving in New York received a Diploma in Professional Photography.
His exhibitions in Pakistan garnered awards and he has exhibited at the Main Street Petite Gallery and the Art League of Long Island’s Jeanie Tengelsen Gallery.
Saeed draws inspiration from the Persian Old Master Kamal-ud-din Behzad (a miniaturist) and also follows the work of Shakir Ali, Abdur-Rehman Chughtai, Ghulam Rasool, and Jamil Naqsh in Pakistan. Gary Tucker, Nitin Singh and Tim Wilmot are his favorite watercolorists.
Saeed has been working on his video project “Lotus Educational Training Program”, an Art Learning Tutorial Program on YouTube and Dailymotion since 2015. His most recent tutorials focus on watercolor painting, though there you will also find lessons on painting and drawing. You can reach the artist at email@example.com.
