About the Artist
Tusif Ahmad is a Pakistani-Australian self-taught papercutting artist. He formally studied visual arts at the Rawalpindi Arts Council in Pakistan, and began exclusively papercutting two years after migrating to Australia in 2006. Tusif seeks to build bridges of cross-cultural understanding through his art by helping to dispel misconceptions about the Islamic faith. He says, “it’s not just about selling a piece of art; it’s about sharing something beautiful, making a connection, and leaving a positive mark on the world.” https://muslimartshub.islamicmuseum.org.au/blog/linkedin-for-artists-with-tusif-ahmad
