Tanzara Gallery takes great pleasure in presenting the works of Karachi based, acclaimed artist Shakil Saigol.

‘Abhinaya’ is a strong and definitive body of work that transcends boundaries.  The artists’ rich aesthetic vocabulary evocatively combines traditional imagery with a powerful contemporary disposition. In this exhibition the artist focuses on the myriad form of Abhinaya for inspiration. Characterized by strong metaphors, imagery and intricately worked canvases, Saigol’s work exudes both boldness and fragility. In works like this, the artist captures fleeting emotions and ephemeral instances of his feelings with a lucidity that stems from his highly developed skill and technique.
