Participating in Art Palma Brunch 2012

Mumtaz (Pakistan 1980) is one of the most prominent members of the new generation of contemporary master miniaturists who develop their practice at the crossroads between Western and Eastern traditions in visual arts with a special emphasis on ancient techniques such as Mughal Miniature. For Mumtaz's first exhibition in Spain, La Caja Blanca brings together a selection of miniature paintings developed on newspaper clippings and dollar bills, which the artist created during a Fullbright scholarship in Columbia University, and a series of new pieces previously unseen where the artist uses original Pakistani rupees.
