Vanity is Stronger than Love at Sixteen

Maria Khan, an upcoming artist of Pakistan is coming up with her new series “Vanity is Stronger than Love at Sixteen” at Canvas Gallery from Tuesday January 9th 2018 till Thursday, 18th January, 2018.

She holds a degree of Masters from National College of Arts and currently a faculty member of Punjab University. You will find inspiring characters in her creativity with large eyes, wide shoulders, strong necks with a setting with flowers, berries, fruits and prints.

She says: “The process is a journey of discovery; partly of self. These visuals are in our head, all of us have locked them away far from the eyes of the public. Unlike us these figures are comfortable in their skins and emotions regardless of the norms of the society they live in and very much like us they aspire for more – love, beauty, power and the stars.”

Inspired from the works of Botticelli, Manet and Paula Rego, her work is an expression of stories and secrets that she carry within.
