WESTMurad Khan Mumtaz
20 SEP - 15 OCT 2016
Murad Khan Mumtaz's work is informed by his training in traditional Indian painting. He initially learnt this craft in his native city of Lahore, and has continued to investigate techniques of Pahari painting, including the preparation of traditional natural pigments. From 2008 to 2010 he completed his MFA from Columbia University, New York, on a Fulbright Scholarship. Since then his practice is concerned with the disappearance of traditions and histories in the wake of the modern. Mumtaz is currently completing a PhD in Art History from the University of Virginia, with a focus on 18th century North Indian painting.
