Book Description

6 Jan 2009
We need security and shelter within art's four walls When some tragedy and despair in one's life befalls. Where real life at times can seem so harsh and cold, Allow art, with its dimensions, to embrace and hold. When art touches life we are left with questions and very few concrete answers. Why do we live? Why do we die? Why do we invent? Why is the world as it is? What would our lives be like in an ideal world? For years, poets, artists and great thinkers have pontificated on these questions and others, and this rich, vivid collection of poetry offers fresh considerations of the myriad possible answers.

5.0 out of 5 stars Life and art expresses emotions 15 Mar 2009
Life can mean so many things, each day we embrace life as we see fit to live it. Or at least thats what we would hope.
Life is given a new meaning in this facinating and true to life book of mixed emotions felt through everyday life, expressed through the form of art and given a new meaning of our everyday joys and sadness that we call life.
This in all promises to be an excellent read for kids and grown ups alike.
Now this book comprises of various forms of poetry expressing lifes ups downs and joys. I got stuck into this book after having a flick through it and it had me hooked. I feel that I can relate to some of the work in my everyday life and im sure you will too.
Emotions pain and happiness you can relate to as possibly the writer felt through growing up. Poems such as 'Smile it wont kill us' and 'Pain we cannot always explain' stand out as my clear favourites. I give full credit to the writer for his acomplishment on this book and his creative mind which is sheer brilliant.
Art and poety meet to make for an interesting read and a modern take on life. I urge young and old who as facsinated by life and have many feelings they cannot talk about or find it hard to show their feelings to get this book. This is one interesting read and i hope there will be many more under this banner. Cannot praise this enough and i mean it, buy it and you'll see why.

5.0 out of 5 stars A 'Literary Genius' of our time! 21 Feb 2011
I highly recommend purchasing this book, you will not be disappointed! Asif is a true poet of our time, his use of words are so clever, well written and thought provoking.

His poetry will make you laugh, cry, challenge the way you see your life and others, you will never be able to look at people in the same way, once you have been touched with 'When Art Touches Life.'

I read this book from beginning to end in one go, I just couldn't put it down! I searched the internet to see if he had written any more, sadly I couldn't find any..
