The start of June saw some of Karachi’s more known faces attend Yousaf Bashir Qureshi’s presentation of ‘Recollections’ which was an evening affair where he showcased his previous and latest art pieces. The event was held at the Canvas Art Gallery and marked the artist’s first showcase.

Even though this was Yousaf Bashir Qureshi’s, or better known as YBQ, first art showcase, he has been in the known to his followers for some time. YBQ is a renowned artist who uses a variety of mediums to express his love for art. Some such mediums are painting, sculpting, photography, writing and even fashion design. In a manner of speaking, YBQ is an all-rounded experimenter in all things art. With his debut art showcase in Pakistan, YBQ  hopes to reach out to millions of people who are art-fanatics and illustration-lovers.

We are glad to see that even in a country like Pakistan, where everything is plagued with insecurity, artists like YBQ are pushing their own personal boundaries and refusing to stick with only one medium to express their personas. Here is to hoping that the art scene in Pakistan continues to grow rapidly and without pause.

In case you missed the event or were not based in Karachi; here is a quick highlight of all that happened:

The event was hosted by Catwalk Productions with PR by Catalyst PR & Marketing and was supported by Getz Pharma.
