About Me

Hi, I'M Aysha Akhtar

Welcome! I am a contemporary artist, living outside of Washington DC. By day, I am a physician (neurologist and public health specialist), military veteran, CEO and Co-founder of the Center for Contemporary Sciences, and the author of two books. You can read more of my bio here

But by night, I’m an artist. Self-taught in art, I view my artwork as complementary to my medical background. Art is not what you see, but what you feel. As a neurologist, I understand how colors, shapes, textures, and form can evoke emotional experiences. These forms of visual perception are also neurologically integrated with other sensory stimuli such as taste, touch, and even sound. Collectively, the interconnectedness of these sensory inputs creates an experience that is larger than the sum of its parts. I use my art to help the viewer experience an emotion—whether a sense of calmness, empowerment, nostalgia, awe, amusement, or happiness (a vastly underappreciated emotion today).

I use a variety of mediums and techniques and bold color--never wanting my art to become repetitive.  But I tend to approach all my art with a bit of raw wildness and spontaneity-- thus keeping my art organic. I especially enjoy mixing different techniques and mediums on the same paintings to keep them dynamic and unexpected.

I just emerged as a professional artist in 2021. Here are some recent shows and recognitions:

2022, Exhibizone Group Exhibition, Kingdom Animalia

2022, Las Laguna Art Gallery (Las Laguna, CA)

2022, Solo Exhibition, d'Art Center (Norfolk, VA)

2021, Juried exhibit, District Arts Gallery (Frederick, MD)

2021, Juried exhibit, B Extraordinaire Gallery (virtual exhibit)

2021, Artists for Ahimsa Award
