Saira Wasim received her Bachelors in Fine Art from the National College of Arts. Teeming with figures captured in mid-action, paintings by Saira Wasim present grand narratives. If it weren’t for their petite size and two-dimensionality, they might be mistaken for Greek mythology, Baroque opera, epic film, or other monumental genres. Like the protagonists of such grand genres, Wasim’s characters gesticulate, prance, shoot, and fly in majestic style. They laugh and boast in hideous fashion, and morph into grotesque hybrid creatures that hint at transcendent themes of good and evil. Wasim’s work has been exhibited at The Asian Art Museum San Francisco, Contemporary Arts Centre Cincinnati, Asia Society Museum New York and Harris Museum & Art Gallery, UK.
