Saira Wasim (born 1975, Lahore) is among the top ranking modern miniaturists in the art world. Wasim uses the miniature style of painting, pioneered by the Persians but extensively used in South Asia, to make primarily political and cultural art. Her miniatures are significant socio-political commentaries, loaded with international political contents and social reflections.
