In order to express his intentions, he employs popular myths and folk lore. Many of his paintings have an elaborate narrative but they are seldom cluttered. Elements are not huddled together but part of an established whole. Pictorially his works individually engage the viewer to narrate their tales that the viewer is expected to unravel.
His still-life renderings are self indulgent but sating. They delight in exuding colour and smile at you with cheerful light.
In brief, I find Sabir’s works aesthetically exquisite, imaginatively enchanting and in the social context intellectually enriching.”
