Eminent artists’ work put on display
Islamabad – A group show featuring paintings and calligraphies by various eminent and emerging artists continues to attract the art lovers of the federal capital at Gallery6.
The displayed items have various stunning art pieces by the artists including Khusro Sabzwari, Abid Hasan, Abdul Rahman Ghazi, Sara Khan and Chinese calligrapher Ibrahim.
Born in Karachi, Khusro Subzwari appears on the horizon of modern art as self-made, passionate artist, although by education he is a civil engineer.
In 1978, Gulgee awarded his oil painting with 2nd prize.
From here, his journey of success begins and now he is amongst leading artists emerged from Asian soil.
Today Khusro falls in list of famous artists in Dubai as well.
He is best known for acrylic paintings and abstract expressionism.
Apart from solo exhibitions, he took part in numerous art events in Dubai and Turkey.
Being civil engineer, he has sound authority on balance, form and composition coupled with texture and creativity to generate 3D effects in his artwork.
Most of his paintings are themed on Sufism.
Abstraction as his fundamental style keeps on nurturing his unique artwork.
He loves taking inspiration from nature.
Hasan is a contemporary painter and uses a very unique chemical process for his compositions.
“He uses chemically treated silver on canvas and applies pigments externally,” commented Director Gallery6 Faisal Arjumand.
“The style is unique because there are currently only two artists in Pakistan who are using a similar medium,” he added.
The leading Chinese calligrapher Ibrahim painted his creativity through the medium of ink on Chinese paper while colourful silk borders add further attraction to the work.
Ibrahim has his own masterly techniques and skills of Chinese calligraphy with a solid foundation as he creates calligraphies both in Chinese and Arabic writings which gave him appreciation internationally.
Some of the works are displayed at the gallery while the remaining collection has been put on display for online viewers.
