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.
