Shahzia Sikander

Shahzia Sikander was born in 1969 in Lahore, Pakistan. Sikander received her undergraduate degree at the National College of Arts in Lahore, and her MFA in 1995 from the Rhode Island School of Design.She currently resides in New York and Texas. Sikander specializes in Indian and Persian miniature painting, a traditional style that is both highly stylized and disciplined. While becoming an expert in this technique-driven, she imbued it with a personal context and history, blending the Eastern focus on precision and methodology with a Western emphasis on creative, subjective expression. In doing so, Sikander transported miniature painting into the realm of contemporary art. Reared as a Muslim, Sikander explores both sides of the Hindu and Muslim women combining their imagery.
