Iqbal Hussain

After finnishing his studies at NCA in 1974, Mr. Hussain dedicated his career to painting women of his abode - the red light district of Lahore. He has continued to live in the district to be close with his people to whome he portrays in his paintings_ the men and mainly women, the denizens of the vicinity. The mostly neutral pallette and diffused light source hints at the sadness and less glamorous reality of Heera Mandi - the local name for the district. Mr. Hussain has a sensitive yet unapologetic approach, unwilling to simply gloss over the truth.
