Aziz is renowned for his unique style and technique and specializes in a style of relief art, using Plaster of Paris, and oil painting. He has pioneered the use of a unique, masterly technique of creating ‘three dimensional reliefs’ on canvas. A combination of colour, depth and granularity define this particular genre. Aziz’s works involves the usage of media like watercolours, oils and charcoals and has a unique appeal with great amount of detail in them. A knife is used to sculpt and work on the texture and consistency of the subject. This technique is a blend of painting and sculpture which has been developed and mastered by Aziz.
