Bad Marriage

Bad Marriage

Another great painting by Bilal Maqsood (member of Strings, the Band) based in Karachi, Pakistan.

Rockstar and Chinese Whispers

Unfortunately, these pictures of the paintings don’t do justice to the real thing but it gives you an idea of Bilal’s work.



  1. I think this one is my favorite of the three you’ve put up. Not only is it beautiful but gives us some insight on Bilal’s sense of humor.

    Lovely work…sums up ‘bad marriage’ perfectly…could be interested if it’s still available…pls send me details. Cheers!

  3. I happened to come across some of these paintings on your blog. Thanks for sharing. Its great to see something so black and white as a crow, and something so commonplace in our largely featureless urban landscape, come alive in such a striking manner. I was wondering if you could put me in touch with the appropriate person as I am interested in obtaining some of his work.

  4. Rahil & OA – Thanks for your message and emails. I have sent you both e-mails.

    Really Powerful image – the way the 2 crows are turning away from each other actually forms a heart. Very talented!

  6. Didn’t notice the heart shape before…amazing!

  7. didn’t notice the heart shape either. Thanks Shoda! I’ve said this before, but I love how crows are featured in a lot of his paintings, very cool.

  8. He’s immensely talented, but am I the only one scared by the kawwa images? :p

  9. On a completely unrelated note, please check out this clip with Strings and Hariharan performing an unplugged version of Duur. I am completely obsessed with it and listen to it on repeat. I wish they would release this as a single. All three of them are SO talented.

  10. Oms I loved the link…i adora Hariharan’s voice …it’s so peaceful and he has amazing control. And of course, I love the song 🙂

  11. Shoda, here’s another Strings & Hariharan collaboration. I think the video was shot in Dxb!
