'His narrative style uses original kelim* fragments, many archaic motifs and symbols with a central theme: caravans, wandering and migration. In doing this, the artist processes his own experience to pass on an understanding of his life and work to the next generation. In his recent work, Ali Zulfikar uses several layers one on top of the other. as the layers break up wonderful structures are revealed which reminds one of tree bark or lizard skin, providing age and depth. on top of this structure Ali Zulfikar prefers to draw beautiful women or mature male faces struck by life, placing female youth next to the wisdom of age to complete his outlook on life. He often adds a thin layer on top of his portraits so that they seem to disappear behind a pane of rain covered glass. there is always something new to discover so that the viewer never tires of exploring his paintings'
