Born in Mussourie. Kamar Alam is best known for the distinct portrayal of the human form in his paintings. He breathes life into his work by communicating with the painting. His figures are perfect, the play of light and darkness is balanced, and the movement of the canvas takes the viewer to loop back to a starting point on the painting. Having experimented with various mediums, the artist has been able to carve a niche for himself using the pointillism technique in creating the artwork.
