Ali Sultan is known for his exuberant and visceral paintings that express a range of human emotions and textual responses in an abstract form. Art Critic Quddus Mirza states that ‘the artist’s source of inspiration comes from his immediate reality, familiar experience or interaction with literature.’
This current body of Ali Sultan’s work derives directly from surrounding urban geography in all its discontents. Works with titles such as ‘Ferozepur Road’, ‘Nawaz Sharif Park’ & ‘Capri Cinema’ connote a direct response to his surroundings as mediated through his own experience or beamed through the television and media in one’s living room. The result is colourful works that contain elements of darkness and are a somber reflection of our our current reality as urban Pakistanis.
Ali Sultan has previously exhibited in May 2014 and this is his second solo exhibition at 39K.
