Born and raised in India, Hassan came to USA in 1998. After the first eight years in New York, he moved to Houston with his wife and four children. He loves traveling and exploring cultures of the world. Texas is his home now.
“Calling myself an artist would be far from truth. I am just naturally attracted to all forms of art. May it be words, shapes or notes. I call myself an “idea-man”, not an artist. I have been an advertising man for last 27 years with various agencies, before I started Hassan Studio. A production house engaged in creating digital marketing contents with niche in social media marketing.
In short. I belong to the field of media and marketing. I do short films, commercial photography, copywriting and sometimes dabble with colors and canvas as an enthusiast.
I have designed book covers, magazine cover as an Art Director for a publisher in New York. Created numerous advertising campaigns for clients ranging from financial institutions, to hospitals and law firms, fashion designers to restaurants.
I love drama. Bold and in the face work. Some of my favorite artists include Dali, MF Husain, and everyone who shocks me. I run a Facebook Group called Texas Muslim Artists to provide space to emerging local artists.
Hope I learn from everyone in the exhibit, meet awesome people and make new friends the art industry.“
