Summary

An epic coming-to-America success story, this is the autobiography of Pakistani-born American artist Jamali who originated Mystical Expressionism and whose mission is to bring peace to the world through art.

In this illustrated memoir the reader is treated to an epic saga covering seven decades and three continents about an artist's dream for a more peaceful world. The eldest son of a prominent family living in the foothills of the Himalayas, Jamali experienced the horrors of war through the Indian Partition, which led him to pursue a life of peace through art on a prolific scale producing more than 40,000 original works to date. The complex surfaces and mystical imagery found in Jamali's paintings have been compared to the neo-expressionists Anselm Kiefer and Georg Baselitz. His gestural techniques link him to Jackson Pollock and the New York School. But the pre-eminent art critic Donald Kuspit observed that Jamali's singular method required its own name--Mystical Expressionism.

One hundred artworks individually selected by the artist accompany the engaging text in a separate section beautifully printed on a specially coated paper. Inspired by people such as Gandhi who advocated change through non-violent measures, Jamali hopes to change our lives by sharing his story of art and peace.
