The Karachi-based artist has 5 years of experience and now works at a painting shop in Lyari.

He matriculated from GBSS and prefers portraits and face paintings. His expertise lies in pencil work which his informal teachers, his father and Prem encourage and refine.


The Internet has been amazed at how talented the young artist Jawad Baloch is.

The Internet has proven it’s worth in supporting new talent throughout Pakistan (Remember our pyaara chai wala?)

This bright-eyed boy’s talent has unbridled potential and deserves grooming and recognition. Whether it’s a sponsorship to attend art school or helping commission his portraits for art exhibitions, every little bit is important. In light of the saddening death of guitarist Amir Zaki, it’s obvious that the artists and performers of Pakistan need and deserve support whether, federal or civil. It’s terrible that we use them and indulge in their art and dry them out and take, take, take without giving back.

It’s time to give back. It’s time to support people like Jawad.

You can reach out to us if you’re looking to commission this incredible artist for a piece.
