We are proud to present our exclusive artist in United States.
The most promising emerging star artist from

Sheeba Khan is much more than just another beautiful artist. 
Her story is out of a fairytale... I invite you to see the colorful movement that is translated by Sheeba Khan onto canvas. Let me give you a taste of it...

Burning Waters
36" x 48"

Broken Angel
24" x 36"

"My father was a close friend of the Nawab Of Bhopal (the ruler of Bhopal). In the late 50s, His Majesty, Nawab Hamidullah Khan, convinced my father Abdul Saeed Khan to buy 500 acres of land in the forests. The Nawab of Bhopal used to spend his weekend there, hunting for game. When my father moved to 'Daatkho' (my village), it was uninhabited and 20 kms deep in the jungles.

The Bleeding Tree

Blue
36" X 48"

You had to cross seven wild rivers to get there. He was a brave, 
adventurous man and decided to create his own world there. 

Tulip Garden
28" x 40"

He lost his first wife and many decades later, married my Mom and took her back to Daatkho. We had a huge log house in the middle of the darkest, deepest jungle. By now, a large group of tribals had settled down in our village and worked for my dad. I was born in the jungle. And raised there for the first 10 years of my life.

The Soul Thief
40" x 40"

I was literally a princess. And my father the king. People from distant villages trudged down the mountain by the hundreds, carrying burning torches, to celebrate my birthday.  I would proudly sit on a cane high chair, proud like a princess while the tribals would dance all night long around a large bonfire. 

Synesthesia
24" x 36"

Icefire
30" x 40"

I went fishing and hunting with my Dad every day, often coming face to face with a tiger or a leopard. He would tell me about the time he was mauled by a tiger and left for dead. I felt so proud of my Dad when he showed me the scars.

Arabian Horse

Arabian Camel

Dance of the pheasants

Birds of a Feather
28" x 40"

Metropolis of Mayhem
36" x 48"

Despite being away from civilization, my mom home-schooled us and when I turned 11, much to my dismay, we were whisked away to Bhopal. I could relate to Tarzan's plight when he had to move to London for Jane. I felt like a fish out of water. 

Life is a Circus
24" x 36"

Prisoner of the Mind
30" x 30"

Blink Again
24" x 36"

Enigma
36" x 48"

Heart Throb
32" x 32"

I found the city slickers devious, conceited and full of hidden agendas and missed the simplicity of my jungle. I missed the animals and their soothing sounds, the gurgle of the river that put me to sleep like a lilting lullaby…” A fairytale indeed!!!

Butterfly Effect
36" x 48"

Cataclysm
30" x 40"

Her story begins fascinating and she grows to becomes a wife and mother. A job she wanted and adored but the fairytale resided within her and was hidden deep for years until it burst out of her in the form of fine art.

Serendipity
30" X 40"

Synesthesia
24" x 36"

Sheeba says, “when I look back, it was the most incredible and unforgettable part of my life but my life is yet again becoming incredible with my artistic journey!”
