“We have become victims of our own art. We touch people on the outsides of their bodies, and they us, but we cannot get to their insides and cannot reveal our insides to them. This is one of the great tragedies of our interiority-it is utterly personal and unrevealable. Often we want to say something unusually intimate to a spouse, a parent, a friend, communicate something of how we are really feeling about a sunset, who we really feel we are-only to fall strangely and miserably flat. Once in a great while we succeed, sometimes more with one person, less or never with others. But the occasional break-through only proves the rule. You reach out with a disclosure, fail, and fall back bitterly into yourself.” Ernest Becker

Zaam Arif is an American-Pakistani contemporary artist residing and working in Houston, Texas. Zaam is currently pursuing his BFA in Design but has been an apprentice of his father, AQ Arif - an award winning artist, for several years.
Zaam Arif explores existentialist experiences of the layman, the experiences that we tend to hide. He confronts it with a penetrating interpretation of the human nature, transforming it into a visceral reality. His work is a manifestation of his understanding of the contemporary human condition along with insights garnered from his study of classical literary giants such as Tolstoy, Dostoyevsky, Kafka, etc.
He is adamant in exploring the harsher truths and inner conflicts that plague us all, in this day and age, using visual contrast in all his pieces, whether through colour, lack thereof or the medium itself, to express it.
