Hira Mansur is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Lahore, Pakistan. She received her MFA from the Slade School of Fine Art, London after completing her BFA in miniature painting from the National College of Arts (NCA), Lahore. She has shown her work nationally and internationally.
Her work was selected by the Mall Galleries for the Royal Institute of Painters in Water Colours and by the Bankside Gallery for Royal Watercolour Society (RWS) in 2013.
Modernist influences are evident in her miniatures, inveigled by technology and modernity. Her practice, however, remains rooted in traditional methods, acknowledging the heritage of miniature painting in both the subcontinent and the undergraduate department at the NCA.
