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.
Saira Wasim’s art has been showcased in a number of premiere museums including the Whitney Museum of American Art, Brooklyn Museum of Art, and Asian Art Museum and featured prominently in art auctions. Saira Wasim is today’s leading miniature artist with a BFA from National College of Arts (1999). Saira Wasim’s work sells-out completely and is in private collections and museums. The artist lives in Illinois, U.S.A.
This is her first solo exhibition in Pakistan.
Paintings on display from 27th September to 11th October 2016.
