Numair A. Abbasi
Numair A. Abbasi is an emerging artist, freelance writer and photographer who completed his BFA with a distinction from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi in 2014. Formally trained in sculpture and photography, Abbasi finds the play of fabric and the male human body most reciprocating. Consequentially, he coalesces the two domains and fabricates narratives that stage a personal or social discourse – often arisen from anecdotes either experienced or witnessed. Abbasi further critiques the politics behind social gender constructs while also attempting to burst the myopic perception towards the canon of male nudes. He has also attained diplomas in the French language awarded by the French Ministry of Education. Abbasi is currently practicing full time as a visual artist and reviews art exhibitions for various publications.
