About me

I am a visual artist and art educator from Pakistan and now based in the UK.
I am passionate about history and finding connections between post-colonial capitalist societies and the legacies of colonialism.

This body of work explores colonialism, post-colonial societies, institutionalized racism, capitalism, and the ideas of feminism. In the Indian Subcontinent, post-colonial societies practice discrimination based on skin colour and linguistics due to irrational opinions and beliefs. These works reflect generalized opinions and behaviors that deepen the class system and promote concepts of inferiority and insignificance. On the other hand, one of the artworks, romanticizes and idealizes racial dichotomy by using a black bearer with unimaginable love for a white child and vice versa. A bond of love is beyond racial, class, religious and ethnic differences.
