‘Human bodies with hunger for intelligence sailing through perplexed areas of their thoughts. This would define my works if at all needed to be defined in a phrase.

‘I let go my characters to perform their desires. At the starting point of the work, I am the bigger self-character as most of my works are reasoning with self. However, by the time the work starts taking a physical shape I become a very small substance and just an audience in comparison to the interacting sculpted characters.

‘I like to push the envelope slowly without bigger than life performances. I feel it is always easier to have a work understood when the work starts asking questions, rather than delivering answers. To make people think with different viewpoints at the same time is like having time itself, thinking. In physical terms, the bondage among figures surprising each other is what I thrive to achieve.’

Shahid Mirza

Shahid Mirza was born 1957 in Lahore. He graduated from the National College of Arts in Lahore with a degree in advertising design in 1981. Since the late eighties he has been a full time painter. He has had very few exhibitions despite his prolific and long painting career. In 2001 he set up Lahore Chitrkar, an art center for painting and classical music run and managed by artists and musicians.

In 2003 he traveled on invitation with other artists from Lahore Chitrkar to Indian Punjab and Delhi. His one day exhibition at the Rock Garden in Chandigarh was the first ever exhibition of a Pakistani artist in Indian Punjab.

Presently he conducts a drawing and painting class and occasionally writes art reviews.

Works displayed at Uddari Art Exhibition: 6
