Artist Profile

Born: 1978

Hometown: Hyderabad

Based in: Hyderabad Sindh

Ghulam Hussain is a contemporary visual artist working with High and Low Craft combination. He was trained in miniature painting, a genre considered as a unique form in the contemporary art world.
Hussain's work is distinct due to its technique and simplicity, opening up a range of possibilities both for the artist and its viewers. Going back to his roots in Pakistan's province of Sindh, Hussain is challenging the notion of high craft by integrating forms of low-craft, such as weaving and brick building, with the miniature style of painting. His aim: to integrate high craft with low craft and represent beauty within stark contrasts of what is considered as high and low.

Inspired by children's sensibilities, Hussain constructs his images like the pattern weaved through in paper. His work deals with the idea of folk art and the innocence of expression both combined and blended in a new manner.

Ghulam Hussain was born in Hyderabad Sindh, Pakistan but now lives and teaches in Lahore. His work has been shown at the International, Canada. Devi Art Foundation Museum New Delhi India and selected for Fifth Beijing International Art Biennial in National Art Museum China and Award Grant Rockefeller Brothers Art Residency New York, Award Grant The League Residency at VYT Ruth Katzman Art Residency New York and Work Display at Embassy of the Kingdom of the Netherlands Islamabad Pakistan.
