SHAHID JALAL 'MARIGOLD' YEAR 2017
"Shahid Jalal is one of the outstanding members of the Association who has no art qualification from any institution and has therefore not been mentioned in their context. He has developed a style of his own which is executed with thick impasto brush strokes, the surface being further divided to form a subtle pattern in his patiently executed landscapes, in which the sunlight and shadows are the other striking elements of the larger design."
- Paintings at Alhamra ‘50 years of Lahore Arts Council’ by Dr. Mussarat Hassan.
"There is nothing casual or even offhand in his work. Both the subject and the style are neat, orderly, planned, precise and refined, like the artist himself."
- Landscape painters. ‘Painters of Pakistan’ by S. Amjad Ali
