CITY PULSE: Let Your Soul Blossom


March 13, 2018

Hira Zubair’s solo exhibition titled ‘Let Your Soul Blossom’ is running at the ArtChowk gallery until March 13. Hira believes that sustaining the soil meditates and focuses on your roots; the strength of spirituality involves our capacity to dig deep and find the greater meanings in life, to align ourselves with a purpose that extends beyond us and to find unity with something greater such as nature. Call 021-35300482 for more information.


Mudassar Manzoor’s solo exhibition titled ‘Shahnama: A Journey Towards the Self’ is running at the Chawkandi Art gallery until March 21. Traditionally, artists have painted stories from Ferdowsi’s Shahnameh following the text, as opposed to today’s artists who find their own interpretation. Manzoor takes it a step further to find his ground to explore and experiment. Call 021-35373582 for more information.
