One of Pakistan's most celebrated artists, Sadequain's diverse body of work spans the intimacy of calligraphy to the monumentality of the mural format. His public works adorn many of Pakistan's premier institutions and historic buildings such as Frere Hall in Karachi, the State Bank of Pakistan, Karachi and the Lahore Museum amongst them. The artist is considered the epitome of the Romantic bohemian inspired by the verses of Urdu poet Ghalib, Ovid, and the syncretic histories of Hellenistic Greece, Rome and Pakistan.
Artist or Maker: Sadequain (1937-1987)
