“When an artist’s inner feelings are outwardly expressed, true art is born. A work of art which did not begin in emotion is not art.”
Forest shrouded in the mist and silver birches glowing in the moonlight are the subjects of Inam’s exquisite and atmospheric oil paintings which blend colors and textures to mesmerizing effects.
Born and brought up in South Asia, Inam learned the fundamentals of sketching and paintings at a young age. An influential art teacher ensured that he has given a solid technical and creative grounding, and encouraged him to pursue his outstanding talent. Keen to absorb as much of the world as he could, he traveled and attended three very different art schools in London, Istanbul and Atlanta Georgia. From each of these, he took away something specific, both in terms of inspiration and discipline and they all played an integral role in forming his future style.
Inam now lives in United States. His success has been international (most of his work is sold in Europe) and he has been invited to exhibit his work in cities like Dubai, London, Paris, Miami, Las Vegas, New York and others. He has also fulfilled many prestigious commissions and his work hangs in mansions, boardrooms, and even on yachts all over the world.
“I believe that various shades of color and interactions between different hues produce emotional responses and have the power to heal, to calm, to energize and inspire. I want to share these discoveries with my audience.”

Chawn Murrah was introduced from a young age to the world of art. Born and raised in Atlanta, Georgia, Chawn showed an early love for timeless artists such as Van Gogh and Picasso.
Carrying his life passion forward past his youth, Chawn achieved numerous awards from his Atlanta high school for both Art and Drafting. After graduating, Chawn went on to hone his skills in architecture, art and the design industry at DeKalb Technical College and Art school.
This instruction, coupled with an innate sense of aesthetics and beauty, has carried Chawn through to a rewarding path of creating art as a career. Carrying forward the elegant works of past masters, Chawn lends fresh life into a world of beauty with his original interpretations of botanical subjects, human models, and the animal kingdom.
Chawn’s soulful love of art is breathed into each new creation. Reminiscent of the golden age of Post-Impressionism, Chawn seamlessly interweaves natural elements with a contemporary touch. Not tethered to the canvas alone, Chawn has also cultivated his craft into unique furniture pieces. Each brush stroke and piece of wood has passed lovingly through the hands of this amazing Artisan; to create prodigious snapshots of his poetic ingenuity.
Chawn successfully harmonizes organic elements and colors with neoteric subjects to forge exclusive compositions that are engaging to both the nouveau and connoisseur collector, alike. Chawn is not constrained by the unemotional remnants of past artistic expression, rather, he has embarked on his own journey to (express) visual imagery through the eyes of the natural world.
Chawn has truly found his passion by means of his interpretation through brush, paint and easel. More eloquent than spoken word: his art reveals the intricate design of a cultured and cognizant reality. “The hand lets the mind reveal itself”, and in Chawn’s universe, the hand is indeed the tool of an exquisite mind.
