Pakistan is full of talented individuals and a 17-year-old artist from Lyari, Jawad Ahmed Jan is proving just that.
Lyari which is known for youth which excel in football and boxing is a hub where those with talent would flourish if given the chance. Jan is one of those.
The 17-year-old who has almost five years of experience in art work has completed his matriculation. He loves portrait and face painting and has an expertise in pencil art work and is encouraged by his art teachers Prem and Jan Muhammad Baloch who is also his father.
He works at a painting shop near Shah Bhittai Hall, Moosa Lane in Lyari. This is exactly where Umme Kulsoom came across him.
Kulsoom shared the portrait and picture of the young artist on Twitter, asking people to RT and wondering whether “Can we take this to Hollywood somehow?”
While it was his portrait of veteran Hollywood actor Morgan Freeman that caught everyone’s eye, we soon came to know it’s not just Hollywood actors Jan is interested in drawing.
