Urban Culture Display by Paintings

Artists and painters often try to reflect things in their paintings through their own eye. They make an attempt for other people to look into things as they see them. This is what happened recently when the artist Durre Waseem showcased her painting in an exhibition that took place in Lahore. The show was titled as “Walking the city”.

This exhibition featured around 41 works painted by Waseem that included 5 mural paintings that kicked off at the Zulfi’s Art Gallery. Inauguration of this exhibition was done by the renowned art critic Mian Ejazul Hassan and big dignitaries, such as, Executive Director of Lahore’s Art Council Captain (r) Atta Muhammad Khan, veteran artist Saeed Akhtar and other arts lovers of Lahore and other cities of Pakistan as well.

One of the unique qualities of Waseem’s paintings is the fact that she uses oil canvas as a medium for all her artworks focused on the theme of street life of big cities. Waseem had an experience of walking on the streets of big cities, such as, Lahore, Paris, Venice and California. Her paintings showcased all the different types of street experiences she had in all these big cities.

The factor that stole so much admiration for this work was Waseem’s selection of bold colors to reveal her theme. This decision became a treat for all the other young artists present at the event particularly from Lahore. They enjoyed profound portrayal of the historic city in her paintings.

Afreen is a young writer and visionary towards life predominantly. I believe that writing is similar to life; it inspires surprises and creates. Being a Literature Masters, I am passionate about viewing the world with literary spectacle. Solely in love with this beautiful part of Universe called Pakistan, I am creating words and ideas for CharchaGuru.
