Evolution of Art Promotion

Sameeha Khaliq

Sameeha Khaliq is a contemporary artist who lives and works in Islamabad. Her paintings pay homage to nature. As the artist explains, “I tell the tales of mysteries of nature inside out and I welcome you to join me on this visual journey.” She juxtaposes elements of reality with surrealism using pen n ink, watercolor, oil paints and charcoal. Through minimal yet rhythmic compositions she conveys feelings of whimsy with elements of surprise. Her images reflect her inner journey and evoke a sense of birth and renewal by transmuting pain into joy. They embody a strong feeling of the dynamic forces of nature and our connection to its miraculous healing energy. Nature and especially the “sacred role of trees” that inspires her artwork. Sameeha is a born artist. After completing master’s in media sciences, she worked for media houses and ad agencies for a couple of years.
