Yasir Waqar was forced to abandon his desire to be an artist. He bowed to parental pressure and became an engineer instead. Eventually when he returned to his true calling he began painting aeronautical diagrams featuring birds with shattered exoskeletons. A representation of how you can bend and break the human spirit in an effort to conform but it still has wings.
