Shahzia Sikander


Friday, September 29, 2006

In an era when many artists have embraced abstract conceptual work, Shahzia Sikander, who was born in Pakistan, embraces good old-fashioned painting. Her main point of inspiration is classical miniature painting – all the rage in the courts of Central Asia some seven hundred years ago. Sikander’s taken this ancient craft to a new, deeply personal level. Produced by Sarah Lilley.
