KARACHI DIARIES: Irfan’s Solo Flight

Preparing for someone special

Syed A. Irfan’s solo exhibition held at Karachi’s Citi Art gallery earlier this year, showcased his latest collection titled ‘Women’s Feelings’. He is a miniature artist who draws upon Mughal traditions riddled with imagery evoking lost grandeur bordered by melancholy, and a fleeting sense of tranquility. The time capsule replays hushed whispers from a bygone era – arcane figures seemingly suspended in another dimension, their hopes and dreams rendered in ‘Watercolor & Gold on Wasli, Gauche, Teawash & Gold on Wasli or Watercolor, Tea Wash & Gold on Wasli.’

Irfan is self-taught like the masters he admires, and his portfolio has been imprinted with romanticism, Sufism and orientalism. He has participated in several shows both at home and abroad and his work is on permanent display in Dubai and Pakistan.
