Over the last 40 years, Jamali has created some 5,000 figurative pen and ink drawings. They are masterfully executed on handmade archival paper, or cork paper, with minimal color. As a classically trained painter, Jamali’s drawings take inspiration from classical Italian figurative motifs inorder to evoke a lyrical beauty. Linear elements, reminiscent of images from an ancient past are combined with a dark sense of humor.
Jamali conceived and executed each drawing as a final, complete statement, none were ever intended as a preliminary sketch for a painting. In this regard their value is exceptionally high.
