He earned a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts with a distinction. He works in various mediums including; drawing, painting, sculpture, videos and large-scale installations. He started his career by painting cinema boards, billboards and truck art at Ideal Arts in Jacobabad. Hanbhi’s body of work includes recreation of cinematic visuals. Using his power of imagination, he extracts new meanings out of existing frames to prolong brief moments in them. The visual arc of this series ranges from romantic scenes, war and political imagery to landscapes from fantasy worlds.
