Opening on Saturday 22nd of June till 29th of June at Gallery 76
“Back to Basics” is a collection of intricately detailed sketches, scenic landscapes and alluring portraits that have inspired the talented artist Sadaqat Pervaiz through his creative endeavors. This solo exhibition will showcase around 40 of Sadaqat’s incredible artworks; the show opens on Saturday 22nd of June at 7:00pm onwards and runs till the 29th of June at Gallery 76 in Dubai International Art Centre.
Sadaqat was born in Wazirabad, Punjab in 1956 and his passion for the arts led him to enroll in the National College of Arts in Lahore. Sadaqat’s first job was as a cartoonist in 1979 at The Muslim Newspaper – the first English daily newspaper in Islamabad. Later he joined MIDAS Advertising in Lahore, and took charge of the Art Department, where he dedicated himself to a number of national level projects. In 1991, he moved to the UAE, and soon joined Expo Centre Sharjah, where he worked as the Art Director for 18 years.
In his own words, Sadaqat explains: “I had always been interested in drawing and painting; sketching, making people’s portraits, and creating landscapes was like second nature to me. When I am painting or drawing, I do not think about the type of medium I have before me or the type of stationary in my hand. It could be a pencil, a ballpoint pen, or even a paintbrush, but to me it does not make a difference. What matters is capturing the image that has caught my attention. At times the urge to draw something is so strong that I just grab whatever is closest to me and start sketching.”
A celebrated landscape artist, Sadaqat’s work has been showcased at a number of art events in cities across Pakistan including solo exhibitions in Lahore and Islamabad. ‘Back to Basics’ will be his first Solo Art Exhibition in Dubai, opening on 22nd of June till 29th of June at Gallery 76 in Dubai International Art Centre.
