Zaira is a fine artist and curator, living and working in Rawalpindi, Pakistan.
My bookmark contains the text “Al-Mutanabbi street starts here” with images of my prints. I have expressed my feelings in my native language “Urdu” which explains how I felt about the bombing of al-mutannabi street & related it to attack in Peshawar school in 2015 killing 132 children. I have distributed the bookmarks at ‘Danish Embassy’ during opening of women artist exhibition – Islamabad, Pakistan. I posted them to my very first teachers in art field, and distributed them among many artists and book-lovers.I am also organizing a small talk about these two dreadful events of our region, and will share images with everyone.Good luck for your such an amazing and successful project. It opened a window that how one can get involved with a project and it became part of your work….You can follow my fb page ‘Zaira Zaka Studio‘ to follow activities of my Printmaking projects.
