Here’s an exclusive preview of a two person show displaying the works by Haider Ali Akmal and Zahrah Ehsan. ‘This tiny garden that we tend’ shows a shared discourse regarding the sense of longing that is unattainable, through artefacts of memory in an idealised atmosphere instilling acts of empathy.
Haider Ali Akmal is a Lecturer of Fine Arts at NCA as well as of Design at BNU, a practicing Printmaker and Design Futurist. He has a Masters in Design from Lancaster University with a keen interest in the overlaps in design and art.
Zahrah Ehsan is a practicing Visual Artist, Lecturer of Fine Arts at NCA, and is currently designing and teaching a number of studio and theory based courses including Painting, Drawing, and Fine Art Seminar. She has been experimental with her work having scavenged for possible materials from industry, popular culture, and utility incorporating it into her paintings.
