Overview

Imran Qureshi (born 1972) is one of the most visible and popular representatives of Pakistan’s contemporary art scene. Schooled in the demanding and precise techniques of miniature painting, he employs symbolism and ornamentation from the Mogul tradition that blossomed in the north of the Indian subcontinent during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In his own idiosyncratic way, Qureshi combines these traditional motifs and techniques with conceptualism and abstract painting, and keen observations of current-day Pakistan are in evidence throughout this young painter’s work. His images convey reflections on the relationship between the West and the Muslim world and the region’s multitude of issues around religion, terrorism and military policy. Honored by Deutsche Bank with its annual Artist of the Year award, Qureshi will realize an installation on the roof terrace of The Metropolitan Museum in New York in the summer of 2013.
