Anwar was born in 1964 in Ambha, Madhya Pradesh. Extremely passionate towards painting, the artist completed his National Diploma in fine arts from Gwalior in 1985. The abstractionist has received multiple awards such as All kalidas exhibition (1985), Bharat Bhavan Scholarship, Government of India Senior Fellowship Scholarship (New Delhi, 1996- 97), National Award by Lalit Kala Akademi (New Delhi- 1995), and many more. Most of the recent works show a vertical division, splitting his work into two contrasting palettes spreading across the surface. Creating his own pigment of pastel shades, the abstractionist creates opaque layers across the surface. All his lyrical pieces of art fully convey his emotions and thoughts, settling into his own signature style.
