Ishrat Khan Vancouve Painter


ISHRAT KHAN was born in Agra, India and emigrated to Canada in 1965.

His works have been exhibited in Vancouver at:

• Gordon Smith Gallery, North Vancouver (Volunteer Art Shows)

• Vancouver Art Gallery (Vancouver Artist’s Group Show 1967)
• Silk Purse Gallery, West Vancouver

Ishrat creates semi-abstract urban landscapes using free strokes and vibrant colors with acrylic, oil and watercolor. He also uses oil crayons on prints to highlight details, re-emphasize color and mood thereby creating one of a kind print. He utilizes his civil engineering background as a base and his world travels as inspiration. Ishrat has also done art restoration work most recently for a client in Ottawa as demonstrated in the painting The Regiment (36x60 inches).
