I Mohd Syeed Teeli is Kashmir and Bengal based artist working on many concepts and concerns through different mediums and forms of everyday life of being Kashmiri artist. Where my position as artist is among those who are struggling to express and are inquest of language to stand as politically Kashmiri artist. As my art works in my bachelor’s degree in Kashmir were ranging from different experiments to thematic and concepts. As I am experimenting with woodcuts paintings, performance, writing, activism etc. Prior to this I am currently master student of Visva Bharati University - kala Bhawan. I think art is my political, psychological and social tool that holds a bigger responsibility to stand in front rather than taking back flight. As Kashmir is conflict zone so art is like grass which grows itself. As a Kashmiri born artist I am painting, writing, and acting the life as Kashmir. I am researching and making the scratches, lines, shapes, forms, symbols, signs, metaphors, colour palette etc. to present the everyday live events and politics through art as tool to resist. In the Kashmir political context I want to convey this message to world that why cannot Kashmir issue be solved. If Kashmiri people have any value before Indian and Pakistani politicians then there would have never been any bloodshed in my paradise. Kashmir have a huge history of peace loving people. The history bears witness to the fact when a chicken was to be slaughtered a person had to find a person from the whole village for the same purpose that he would hardly find. What is the thing which makes a young Kashmiri to wild the gun which he hardly is able to operate in front of thousands of well-organized military forces? I am addressing political and social issues to highlight and impact the viewers to bring awareness for betterment of society.

we decided to hear something from Syeed about his education and the work Thankfully he obliged.
Dear Syeed will you please tell us about your academic education, from where you learnt to draw or paint such wonderful artwork?
Syeed: I have completed BVAP-Bachelors in visual arts painting from the University of Kashmir, Srinagar. And then a diploma in Global governance from International business management institute. Currently, I am studying Masters in fine arts painting from Kala Bhavana visva Bharati university west Bengal and Masters in political science Through Ignou Kolkatta. And have completed more than 20 e-certificate courses [ both credit-based and non-credit based –From different institutes. And one of course which I enjoyed and experienced beautifully that is English for career development by university of Pennsylvania [coursera] I have had a family background of Islam. My father is a govt. employee and two of my elder brothers and three sisters are studying in different streams. Finally, I can say it is a surprise for my family and community. I am the first professional painter in my district Kulgam I am very satisfied with what I choose and did and most of my skill I developed with hands-on experience, on the commercial works especially house paint. This painting is all about my self that is my sensations, feeling and emotions and abstract relation with rasas/or sentiments of emotional life. It is a mixed media on canvas I,e acrylics, fevicol, varnished, glue and digital printer inks. The previous experience of woodcut printing inspired me especially the textures and carving effects of wood in the process of transformation. I painted those textures on canvas to balance the visual work overall. It was a great technical experience but now my works are responding the politics and other political issues from different communities. The two fishes at the bottom of the painting represent my zodiac sign Pisces. And somehow the irregular terminator I e the reds and greys balance the foreground and creates the dimensions in portrait. The white mouth like waterfall pattern is presenting the freedom of speech and my doubt. As you are aware of the Kashmir issue that the Kashmiri citizens are forcefully pressurized by Indian illegal army [ terrorists for Kashmiris ] and govt. to abduct, imprison and torture Kashmiris. And ban the scholars , writers and artists so that they can rule illegally. the confusion and tensions what they are carving in Kashmir to cripple the economy of Kashmir and erase the Kashmiri at. But i and I strongly believe all the educated citizens are responding to the brutal political policies of India. The work is reflecting all this Indian political in-humanism not representationally. That is why I symbolize myself in painting because I am Kashmiri citizen. I have political identity issues and as a human, I cannot bury the govt. frauds against the nation. I have complete right to expose the inhumanistic organizations like RSS, BJP and ULFA in India. There criminal activities what they claim nationalism is to rape the Muslim kids and murder the Muslims and Christians. They can never achieve the Kashmir because the truth always wins and liars always loose. Talent and intelligence are like grass in Kashmir it grows naturally. Every citizen of Kashmir expresses their emotions and current situations through different perspectives but it is Indian media industries and IT govt cells who are creating the limited circular for Kashmir artists, activists, separatists and publishers. A normal human can not stop emotions but a faulty and abnormal can do it easily. That is all.
THANKS, SYEED IT WAS WONDERFUL EXPERIENCE WITH YOU AND YOUR IDEAS ARE AMAZING. WISH YOU ALL THE BEST FOR REBELLION WAR AGAINST THE ANTI NATIONALISM
