Two person exhibition to be opened today.

ISLAMABAD -- A two person exhibition of unique paintings by Akram Spaul and Sana Arjumand will be displayed here on April 28 at Gallery 6 entitled "Cohesion".

Ambassador of Argentina, Rodolfo J Martin will inaugurate the show while the display will be open for general public till May 13.

Sana Arjumand's work focuses on mixed media canvasses to explore the set-up of society, social responsibility, confusion of identity and the role of religions and culture.

Her work express the artist's response towards her identity, the value of cultural heritage and way to see modern world around her with symbolism.

Akram Spaul paints with delicate life like detail that explore his subject matter to life. His recent realistic oil paintings have distinctly various techniques with a different subject matter.

His work seems academic with super realism of abstraction and action painting. He paints still life with oil colors featuring a piece of furniture, a garden, washing area; infusing detail that brings it to life and brings routine activities into focus with stunning beauty.

The artist brings to attention the beauty that is often ignored in life around, especially the physical settings and material conditions.

Themes of life and routine are explored with truthful and accurate depiction that contemporary life offers to the artist.

Everyday activities are worthy subjects for him as he mostly paints and draw the lives and surroundings of the middle and lower classes, the ordinary and unadorned.
