Profession: painter/visual artist
|Wardha Shabbir describes her work as an aesthetic pictography that is influenced by her surroundings. Her intense imagery is aimed to captivate the eye through its decorative surface like the World which is beautiful, but which serves to mask the violent nature of humans and their animal instincts. Her work is inspired by eclectic sources of personal experiences, where (cunning) rules and obligations dictate her life as definitive ‘last words’ and she feels, she no longer exists ……..and needs her art to express her very existence.
Wadha’s work depicts her sense of how she feels humans are changing into animals and their helpless state where their negativity overcomes their humane (positive) nature – through sharp lines which act as metaphors to voice her thoughts, yet to her, each of these lines denotes a galaxy of meanings rather than rigid ‘last words’.
Wardha lives and works in Lahore, currently, as a professional miniature painter and freelance artist.
