Akram is the youngest master artist, graduating with honors from Herat Faculty of Fine Arts. A student of Raashed Rahmani, Akram is a very promising young artist. Experimenting with various forms and styles, Akram has invented the Mud Art in which he paints with mud, brick, natural semi-precious stones and other natural stuff found in Afghanistan. Although Akram paints with various mediums, he is now known as Mud artist or gilkar [mason in Dari]. He is one of the few artists whose work improves in quality and variety year by year.
