Elephantacy This series of works by Kausar Iqbal present the ideas on broader scale beyond the cultural boundaries of the East. Elephant and Donkey series of Kausar Iqbal’s work also refers to political symbolism associated to Republicans and Democrats in USA. This exceptional work positions Iqbal not less than Thomas Nast of 21st Century. However, unlike Nast’s Elephant, Kausar’s sacred elephant is no more confused, bruised or ailing. It is not in panic to flee, yet seems composed. Unlike Nast’s Jackass Kausar Iqbal’s Donkey believes in progress, reform and cohabitation realizing the great need for the positive change within his society. Behind his intricate and beautiful rendering lay strong symbolism, convictions which are universal in nature. He intends to communicate the message of love, peace, trust and hope. His elephant depicts a Pakhtoon man with positive attributes, when applied in positive direction, can yield much productivity than using his force in destructive way. He shares his thoughts with his viewers and coming generations through his work.

I am from America, came to Dubai on a Business visit and staying in Hilton Hotel. I would like to buy a gift to my son and went to the mall to look for Japanese video games but I am not sure whether he likes them or not. Then I came back to Hotel and looked at the paintings displayed by Artsmiley. I like this Ganesha painting so much and I am pretty sure that my son will definitely like my gift. So I decided to buy this painting and called Artsmiley. They came and hand over the artwork on the next morning with an affordable price. I would like to buy one more big painting in the exhibition, but cant take it now on my business tour. After I reach US, I will order online and Artsmiley manager promised me to deliver it safely to my home.
I have ordered online through Artsmiley website two artworks "Dancing Women" from Egypt and "Blushing Camel" from Dubai. I received these two beautiful paintings in excellent condition. These are wonderful
"Flower Power" painting is very beautiful. I like to so much and immediately called Mr. Lurdh on Friday. Even though its a holiday in UAE he picked up my call and given me some gift code upon my request. Then I placed my order online with frame by using that gift code. I received this painting from Morocco along with framing after 10 days. I am very happy with the framing and painting , it was so lovely and made my home even more beautiful. I would like to order few more paintings from ArtSmiley.
I have seen this "African Village" realistic Painting in Dubizzle and contacted ArtSmiley with my offer. They agreed to sell it for an affordable price.

I would like to buy few more paintings in future and would definitely recommend ArtSmiley to others
