The opening of an exclusive art exhibition displaying the realistic work of S. M. Fawad took place at ARTCITI Gallery in the Bukhari commercial area of DHA Karachi. The launch event was attended by artists, art lovers, art collectors, general public and media.
Vivid observation, passion and perseverance are the primary prerequisites for an artist to paint a subject with realism. Amidst today’s vibrant milieu of contemporary art movements, there are just a handful of painters who continue to pursue Realism with faith. This is an art form that captures the true spirit of an era, its culture and characteristic, thus creating a permanent record for all times to come.
S. M. Fawad is one of those rare painters who have been specifically groomed in the distinguished field of Realism. He has been taught to look pensively through his eyes and decipher the inferred information into a huge but tangible database of visual information. This information is consequently transferred to the canvas with a prowess that has been honed over many years of persistent practice. The results of this disciplined demeanor are the striking paintings at this exhibition that mesmerise the viewers and swiftly give them an intimate feel of the subject and ambience of the work.
The exhibition is scheduled to run for a week at ARTCITI and will conclude on the 17th of May 2017. It is a must-see for all art lovers, especially those interested in viewing fresh work and enjoy witnessing the addition of new trends in the Pakistani art market.
