Brief Introduction of the Artist

Sana Arjumand is a young, versatile and passionate visual artist, based in Islamabad, who has gained worldwide recognition and captured a large international audience in recent years. Her paintings have been displayed in different cities of the world like New York, London, Dubai, Abu Dhabi, Korea, Hong Kong, Mumbai and Delhi. Her work has been appreciated and acknowledged by renowned art critics and publications such as the Time Magazine, Asia Art Pacific and Art Quarterly. Art info magazine had a review on Sana’s work and put her name amongst top ten emerging Indian and Pakistani artists.

Ms. Sana is a very prominent figure of the contemporary art scene. She uses several mediums such as digital prints, collages, large scale oil paintings with splashes of tea and acrylic gel. Conceptually she is a postmodern artist who likes to make pieces around strong concepts revolving around the present state of human existence. She infuses a rich blend of cultural symbolism alongside patterns and images that recur very often in the times we live in. She has touched upon politically and religiously sensitive issues with a sense of wit. "Through wit I can speak comfortably about the most sensitive issues" she quotes. Lately, her interest in folk and spiritual imagery has brought her to contemplate upon the connection of these symbols in our modern life.
