About this artwork

Pareidolia is the psychological phenomenon where we see familiar objects in a random visual pattern, such as faces in clouds, says artist Jamal Sultan. After an intense period of painting portraits and head studies, he began to see faces everywhere he looked. I would begin a painting by putting down washes of color in interesting abstract patterns before doing a portrait I had already planned. Soon I discovered a face was already there, so I just started painting them.
