Karachi Biennale 2017 – a world of art and expression. At a time when Karachi is ranked among the worst cities of the world by the EIU (Economic Intelligence ... Read More »

Jakarta, Melbourne, Karachi

Today, I touched the Arabian waters.

  My journey to Pakistan is a rather…special one. After 1 year of trying (due to certain circumstances) I finally set foot in Karachi on the morning of January 7th 2016. My stay here has not been very long but I feel as though this city, Karachi, has already grown on me. I was born and raised in Jakarta, Indonesia; ... Read More »

Disturbia

The universe in a constant state of flux. Everything is moving, changing, transforming; from the tiniest quark to the largest super cluster. There’s a sudden congestion, a momentary rather a bit persistent. That’s where my fear resides. Inside me, my very own body of which I was once proud off. I am expanding, layering, growing. Growing big, fat, obese. My ... Read More »

Travel Photography: Children Of Kashmir (By Shahzeb Younas)

I left the backyard area to join my friends. After walking away for about 30 seconds, I hear a shout out from behind, as I turn, I have this perfect moment awaiting to be captured

I was thinking of possible reasons why people like to travel and visit new places. Everyone looks so fresh in their travel pictures. There is a glow upon the face and happiness reflecting in the smile when I see a friend’s out-of-country picture. One obvious reason is that people get too tired of their current situation and life that they ... Read More »

Lord Y.A.L.E. (He Who Must Be Named)

DSC_0375

You must have seen him around campus. With a contagiously impish grin  on his face, elfish ears, flaunting his leather bag. He stops after every few steps as he walks, to wave at or chat with a friend, but mostly to gorge on someone else’s food. Amidst a crowd of people who have an insatiable hunger for power, who want ... Read More »

 1. You start out young- maybe as a toddler with a box of crayons, just like everyone else your age. The only difference is they draw occasionally. You draw almost all day and night and never stop. You prefer it to TV or reading or practically anything else. 2. Eventually, other kids slowly stop drawing. You wonder why and keep at it. ... Read More »

From Creepy to Cute: Kinza and Aimen’s Truck Art Fetish!

The before and After post!

Aimen’s mom got a rugged, almost ghostly looking mirror from Karachi’s beloved, Saddar market. It was a tad eerie, ( Oh who am I kidding? it was downright creepy.), to be hung on a wall as a rugged abstract Wall Piece.   That’s when Aimen thought that my presence in her life could finally prove fruitful. I wanted it to ... Read More »
