Jaffer is an artist and collector, who befriended and was patron to the artists, Ahmed Parvez, Imam Ali and Bashir Mirza. His friendships with these artists inspired him to paint, and we can see the influence of Parvez, who taught Jaffer about colours and how they should be deployed on the canvas in the present lot. Jaffer's first solo exhibition was held at Indus Gallery in 1983, and he has continued to exhibit his works since. More recently in 2019, the Wahab Jaffer Collection was presented by VM Art Gallery and the Rangoonwala Foundation, to celebrate the artist and patron.
