The contemporary miniature movement in Pakistan has transformed the traditional, historical miniature painting from the Mughal courts of South Asia into today’s stunning contemporary art form. During this year’s SCOPE show in Basel, JanKossen Contemporary shall be bringing closer to a European—and international—audience the overlooked, yet exceptionally vibrant contemporary miniature art from Pakistan.
Among the works shown are over 30 works created by both established and emerging artists whose works will be premiered during SCOPE; among them artists who are being shown for the first time outside Pakistan.
