Akbar Momin’s 3-D Portraits of PM Modi & Lord Ram-Hanuman Earn Global Appreciation

From one angle, the portrait of PM Modi gracefully emerges, and with a simple twist, the visage of Home Minister Amit Shah takes center stage.

The ingenious creations of Akbar Momin from Gujarat have catapulted him to international fame with his breathtaking 3-D paintings depicting Lord Ram and Prime Minister Narendra Modi. Social media has become the canvas where his mesmerizing works have taken the world by storm, propelling him into celebrity status.

In an exclusive interview with Awaz-The Voice, Akbar revealed that accolades and congratulatory calls have been pouring in from across the globe, leaving his phone incessantly buzzing, even in the stillness of the night.

Beyond religious boundaries, both Hindus and Muslims have united in appreciation for Akbar’s artistic genius. “My wish is to personally present my paintings to Modiji and (Union Home Minister) Amit Shahji whenever they visit Gujarat,” the 69-year-old artist beamed. It was even reported that he once turned down an offer of one million dollars for one of his prized masterpieces.

The wonder of Akbar’s 3-D paintings lies in their dynamic nature. From one angle, the portrait of PM Modi gracefully emerges, and with a simple twist, the visage of Home Minister Amit Shah takes center stage. Moreover, when held near water, another masterpiece portraying Lord Ram reflects the image of Lord Hanuman, capturing the essence of divine interconnections.

Akbar sees his artistic endeavours as a bridge between communities, emphasizing the goodness in both Hindus and Muslims. He firmly believes that not everyone is a stone-pelter, and his art radiates a message of unity and harmony.

Now, his artistry has transcended borders, and he dedicates five-and-a-half months to completing a single painting, investing approximately Rs 30,000 in studio rent, canvas, and colours for each masterpiece.

In this ever-evolving tale of an artist’s triumph, Akbar Momin shines as a beacon of inspiration, leaving an indelible mark on the art world and the hearts of those who encounter his profound creations.
