Rabia Yaseen

‘MANNAT II’ by Rabia Yaseen PKR 80,000/ Mixed media on canvas, 24 by 28 inches. Year 2018.  

RABIA YASEEN is a studio-based Ph.D researcher and visual artist since the last 8 years.

Shiblee Munir

Artist: Shiblee Munir. Medium: Mixed media on paper. Year: 2018. Contact: info@unicorngalleryblog.com

Shiblee Munir was born into a family of fine artists, in the year 1982, in Jhang, Pakistan. Shiblee’s ancestors followed the first Mughal Emperor Babur from their native Afghanistan to Persia and then India, as part of his team of painters and calligraphers, remaining at the Delhi court until the early 19th century. However, with the decline of Mughal power and art patronage, they moved to Patiala (India) transferring the thorough grounding in the Mughal painterly tradition to this Sikh-ruled court. Heading the Miniature Department at the Mayo School of Arts in 1945-1966, Ustad Haji Sharif developed the first curriculum for teaching miniature painting at an academic institution, and he trained the first cohort of miniaturists in independent Pakistan. Shiblee also received academic degrees from the Naqsh School of Arts and Beaconhouse National University. In addition to being a practicing artist, he lectures at the Institute of Visual Arts & Design of the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU), curates exhibitions and is currently pursuing Ms leading to Ph.D in studio practice at the University of Punjab.

Shiblee Munir

Artist: Shiblee Munir. Medium: Mixed media on wasli. Year: 2018. Contact: info@unicorngalleryblog.com

Shiblee Muneer was born in Jhang, Pakistan in a family of artists, in which miniature painting has been practiced for centuries. The family legend has it that Muneerʼs ancestors followed the first Mughal Emperor Babur from their native Afghanistan to Persia and then India, as part of his team of painters and calligraphers. The painting tradition in Muneerʼs family is passed from generation to generation. In addition to being a practicing artist, Muneer lectures at the Institute of Visual Arts & Design of the Lahore College for Women University (LCWU), curates exhibitions and pursues MS leading to PhD in studio practice at The University of Punjab. Finally, Muneer trains children in miniature painting so that they carry on the ancient family tradition into the future. Muneer considers himself a guardian of miniature painting tradition but he also finds inspiration in postmodernist philosophy and new techniques: computer graphics, digitally manipulated images, hyper-realistic painting and collage. His experiments with enriching strict cannons of miniature painting with contemporary techniques to convey 21st century messages are so brilliant that they gained him a place on the list of “Asiaʼs 10 Most Inspiring Visual Artists” according to the Asia magazine in 2014.

Tassaduq Sohail

Artist: Tassaduq Sohail Medium: Oil on canvas Email: unicorngallery@gmail.com

Tassaduq Sohail, a well-known contemporary painter, was born in Jullundar in 1930 and later migrated to Lahore. His family moved him to Karachi in 1952. In Karachi, he found a rich Urdu literary circle and joined them where he was termed as qissa-go, for his talent of tale-narrating, by Muhammad Hasan Askari, the urdu teacher and critic. Sohail moved to London in 1961 and started painting to win female friends and to overcome his loneliness and succeeded in his objectives. But soon the painting became his passion and he joined evening classes at the St. Martin School of Art and art became his career. His first exhibition was held in London in 1978, and over the years there have been so many that he has lost count of them. He states, “They must be in thousands. These include watercolours, pastels, pen and ink and whatnot, but I have kept no record”. Almost after three decades his paintings arrived at Bonham’s – the international art auction house in 2007 that gave him stature of an international artist.
