Chasing the Equus by Jibran Shahid at The Koel Gallery

An exhibition named “Chasing the Equus by Jibran Shahid” has been arranged at the Koel Gallery Karachi from 4th June continues till 30th June 2018.

My work takes elements both from the horse and the human figure, and fuses the two to create a hybrid that incorporates their physical traits, and reflects on their relationship with each other. My association with the horse began at a very young age. I have drawn, painted and sculpted persistently, fragmenting the form, deconstructing it and reassembling time and time again to invent the new configurations it may take while retaining some of its basiccharacteristics. The inspiration comes from diverse sources – from the Centaur in Greek Mythology to da Vinci and Marino Marini. – Jibran Shahid
