From a young age, Shajeel Rehman has considered himself an artist by nature, and that has led to his now 15 years of experience in not only art direction and design experiences but to his career as an artist. On his website, it reads in boldface letters: “Design is everything in this world. The way you walk, the way you move things around. It’s all about design." His unwavering dedication to art was noticed when he was just a teenager, and throughout his young life, he was strongly encouraged to consider Art School. Instead, he joined a design studio at the age of fifteen and was taken under the wing of its art director and later went on to lead a multifarious career in advertising. As a result, Rehman has explored vast artistic mediums during his 15 years in the industry.
Rehman's journey throughout the art world is undoubtedly unique, and as a result, inspires him to create similarly distinctive narratives in his work. Much of his creative process revolves around political statements or the complex beauty of women, but no two creations of Rehman are ever the same. “I’ve considered myself an artist by nature,” he says. “All art mediums are the best channels to communicate the untold story.”
