Popular Artist's Humanitarian Work During Pandemic Times

Fawad Tamkanat is a well-known name in art circles not just in India, but also abroad. He has used the COVID time to produce art for the benefit of the needy and upliftment of the girl child. However, since it was not possible to do physical shows, Tamkanat organized virtual shows to work on his cause.


During the pandemic time, Tamkanat organized a huge virtual show with over 100 artists and the proceeds of this charity show went to foundations such as Kushi Foundation to help the girl child for education and also provide for her necessities. 


But that’s not all, Tamkanat also helped the mentally challenged girl children through his charity shows. For the uninitiated, Tamkanat is one of the few artists who rose to fame when Hyderabad was still developing. At a time when art and painting were unheard of in schools, Tamkanat developed an interest in art which later led him to become a renowned artist. 


He reminisces the times when Hyderabad was just freed from Nizam’s reign and says he remembers the hustle and bustle of the city from those times to today. The gullies of Charminar, the riches to rags stories of many left an indelible mark on the artist. 


Totally moved by the plight of people, Tamkanat’s works have been exhibited in over 30 countries in around 100 shows. He says his works are about situations and people that we know exist but are hesitant to talk about. 


Tamkanat shares that all his works are semi-abstract and that he avoids details. I leave it to people to interpret them. He says he does not interfere with audiences’ reactions.
