Natiq Jalil is a self-taught artist who believes that true art begins during those moments between being asleep and being awake. Natiq’s work is prized by many private collectors and can be seen in many homes and businesses in the mid-west and throughout the East Coast.
His work typically starts out with a doodle, and he works it into the vibrant pieces he is known for. His work is mixed media with a strong focus on watercolor, ink, and acrylic paint. Generally, each piece features a strong female figure (though he paints men, also) as the focus while incorporating various organic shapes, vivid color washes, and beautiful gestural line work. His goal is to bring out the cerebral nature of the content. He has a unique way of elevating the piece's central figures to a spiritual level, pulling the viewer into a sort of meditative experience that is truly incredible.
