Aamir was born in Muzaffarpur, Bihar and holds a BFA (painting) from Jamia Millia Islamia University. He graduated first class in 2017 and has been working in New Delhi ever since. Aamir has been obsessed with the themes of sexuality, gender, desire, intimacy and love. His work has been exhibited both nationally and internationally, with many shows focused on gender, sexuality and identity.
The project explores the Launda Naach (loosely translates to the boy dance) of Bihar and how these dancers are minority artists marginalized by society. Aamir feels their art and stories resonate with his previous work. This series will explore how Launda Naach’s artistic heritage sets itself apart from generic Band Baaja (musical procession) and its popular mainstream appeal.
