Butt, a Lahore based artist, has obtained an innovative modern style of miniature painting with traditional themes spreading on variety of subjects with an aroma of romance, poetry and history.
He has used gold leaf in a number of ways giving an extra ordinary look to his paintings. His incredible mastery of line and form can be seen in the images of human figures. The use of colour, shape, subject and composition distinguish him from his contemporaries. Inspired by the romance pervading ancient legends and folk stories, he freely fuses traditional and contemporary art through his expressions in his paintings. His choice of medium is gouache on wasli in most of the painting and a few were in watercolour on canvas.
His collection of works depicts human figures in dreamy backgrounds representing a Mughal era atmosphere.
