What Shamshad has imbibed from the art milieu at home
is the pictorial significance of the human figure both
as an artistic expression and a statement of faith in
mans social existence. This was latter reinforced by
the prevailing art ideas and ideals in the academic
circles in Baroda during his sophomore years. At Royal
College of Art, his exposure to what was emergent in
western art could have broadened the range of his imagery,
but his concern in man as a social being has left a
permanent impress on his art. Shamshad adopted the graphic
clarity and the adopted the graphic clarity and the
essential flatness of the painted surface as important
elements for his painting. Shamshad paints people with
a restrained palette and people on everyday social plane
appear in pictorial space uncluttered with realistic
details of the `place`.
