Asif Farooq lives and works in Miami, Florida, where he was born. His art operates in ideas of impermanence and verisimilitude, taking place between the anti-formal postmodern and the rigidly traditional.  

An expert craftsman, Farooq approaches our common environment by joining standard art-making practices with technical innovation. He combines aspects of the world around him as he experiences it and gives the resulting artifact of this experience back to that very world.  Deeply personal and unafraid of sincerity, Farooq's art seeks to communicate to any person who encounters it.
