Elisabetta Marabotto of Saffronart shares a note on Muhammad Zeeshan’s current exhibition at Latitude 28
London: Latitude 28 in New Delhi is currently hosting Muhammad Zeeshan solo exhibition: Posternama.
The exhibition includes Zeeshan’s recent body of work which is inspired by miniatures’ imageries such as myths, stories of saints and martyrs and scholars which have been reinterpreted by the artist’s austere sensibilities and transformed into contemporary miniatures.
Zeeshan said about his work: “I am using poster images found locally within our culture. These imageries consist of mythical creatures and human. Within the Sufi culture lies a lot of fantastical stories. Using these stories, random local artists and believers have given their own faces to the Sufis and creatures, illustrating the time, events and landscape. I am using those posters to research and explore my own technique.”
The artist started his career as billboard painter and then studied miniature art at National College in Lahore. For this exhibition he experimented laser scoring which made his work meditative, almost spiritual.
The exhibition is on until January 5. For more information click here.
