Anwar is an artist with an interest in interactive production and technology. He is the founder of an interactive art studio, DigitalDip, and co-founder of Me A Monster Inc. His project series, Odd Spaces, brings together art, culture and technology in an odd configuration to explore our perceptions towards architectural space, private or public spaces and social interactivity in modern urban cultures.

His project, Odd Spaces, was part of Vancouver Olympics – 2010 Code live exhibition, a real-time remote installation between Bangladesh, Pakistan and Vancouver. In October 2011, Odd Spaces was also shown at Nuit-Blanche Toronto and created a real-time installation between Karachi, New York and Toronto. Odd Spaces was presented at the exhibition Six Degrees of Separation: Chaos, Congruence & Collaboration, 2008, curated by KHOJ, International Artists’ Association in Delhi, India and was presented in Pakistan, India and Bangladesh in September 2008.
