The works of well-known contemporary Pakistani artist Mohammad Ali Talpur are being showcased at London’s Austin/Desmond Fine Art gallery. The solo exhibition, in collaboration with Canvas Gallery, Karachi shows a selection of recent paintings which demonstrate Talpur’s continued interest in the line. Having attended the National College of Arts in Lahore, Talpur reacted against what he saw as pressure from academia on students to “produce charged works.” Instead he aims to paint without loaded references, content or emotion, using only the line. The exhibition runs till February 28th.
