Modern Pakistani Art

I mentioned my friend has a large collection of Pakistani art.  She and her husband live in Karachi half the year and the other half in Minneapolis.  Their walls are filled with modern art from local artists from Pakistan.  I especially loved this one with four nudes.

Here is a link for more info on art from that part of the world that I am now discovering.

And here's a link about their amazingly decorated buses and cars in Pakistan!

I must confess I know nothing about Pakistani modern art... Thank you for the link, Sheila!

This is very cool. Subject really is second in this. The color and everything is wonderfully bold.
Thanks for the comment on my vegetables. It is a fun one.

Thanks for the links, Sheila!

Like JM, I don't know much about Pakistani art either.

Thanks for sharing what you learned with us!

I've always enjoyed paintings executed in the style of the Fauves. This one is bright and exciting to look at
