The publication lauded Toor's brilliance and penned, "Toor, who was born in Lahore, Pakistan, and lives in New York City, has made his career subverting the styles of old paintings by centering openly queer men of South Asian descent in an attempt to, as he says in the audio guide for The Star, “play with the idea” of societal norms."

"Now more people than ever are paying attention: the artist recently secured his first solo show at the Whitney Museum of American Art in New York City, which will be on display through April 2021.", it further added.

Recently, the talent powerhouse made headlines when he sold his painting in the United States at a whopping $822,000, probably the highest ever for a Pakistani artist.
