Khan’s artwork is very personal to him; it is the culmination of his experience, travels and relationships he has built over the years. Growing up in both Sindh andPakhtun and now in Punjab he is able to absorb/observed the vast culture they have to offer. From a very young age he worked as a mechanic and also decorated these trucks with Chamak Patti (a medium used to decorate trucks in Pakistan) through chamak patty he was able to study the esthetic and cultural nuances between various regions and styles. Learning the skills from various ustads over the years he feel enriched and privileged with this immense knowledge – working with this medium was only organic for him.

Khan has a deep adoration for trucks and large transport vehicles/vessels. His journey in working with Chamak Patti is taking him through various questions of art and craft practice. While different regions use chamakpatti as a medium of expression of their culture and diversity, he find it his language of expression, and feel through his work he is able to connect and bring various voices in his past to form a new journey together. Sometimes in abstract and others a vivid imagery he want his viewers to come along with him on his journey through his work.
