The Artist

Group Captain Syed Masood Akhtar Hussaini is a gifted military aviation artist of the Pakistan Air Force. Born in January 1951, the officer joined PAF College, Sargodha in 1963 and was commissioned in March 1971 from the Air Force Academy at Risalpur in the General Duties (Pilot) Branch. In 1973, the officer qualified as an Air Defence Weapons Controller, a capacity in which he continues to serve in the PAF. He holds a Bachelor's degree in Avionics.

Having taken up aviation painting as a hobby during his pre-cadet days at Sargodha, the artist has continued his close observation and accurate depiction of PAF activities for over 30 years.

An Artist Fellow of the American Society of Aviation Artists, he is a realist in the tradition of Keith Ferris (USA), Frank Wootton (UK) and Paul Langeley (France), and has won international acclaim and a place of prominence amongst the leading aviation artists of the world. In this highly specialized field, he can rightly claim to be the first world class aviation artist in South Asia.

A newspaper 'The Daily Progress' of Virginia (USA) paid rich tributes to Hussaini and termed him as "The oil and canvas chronicler of Pakistan's military victories". On the 40th anniversary of the PAF, the Government of Pakistan issued ten commemorative postage stamps all bearing the miniaturized prints of Hussaini's aviation paintings.
