Imran Qureshi’s practice is firmly rooted in the tradition of miniature painting, the subject he still teaches at the National College of Art in Lahore, an art form that reached its zenith during the Mughal Empire. Imran Qureshi has been exhibiting locally and internationally for almost twenty- five years and has greatly expanded the language of miniature painting, both in traditionally sized and crafted works and in many original variations in the form of site-specific installations, three-dimensional works, videos, and paintings on paper and canvas. His work is exemplary of a practice that combines a local background with a global outlook, artistically, socially and politically.
