Zulfiqar Ali Zulfi 2017

Opening Reception: 
14 Dec 2017
4:30pm - 7:30pm
Tanzara Gallery, Saidpur Village

Tanzara Gallery takes pleasure in presenting the works of
Lahore based artist Zulfiqar Ali Zulfi. The beautiful canvases
are from his recent “Punjab Romanticism” series.
Zulfi is a realist painter, but his paintings, be they landscapes or
cityscapes are more than an imitation of what is seen. He has the
magic of capturing the essence of the vignette that he replicates
on canvas. Beyond realism he understands his subject matter
well - Be it a rustic scene, or an urban setting, misty horizons, or
cattle out in the open fields, the artist renders such images with
amazing dexterity. .
His paintings take their inspiration from a direct observation of
nature. He uses a rich palette that brings a pictorial richness
to his canvas. Zulfi’s imagery is idyllic and delightful- he is a
master of capturing seasons and times of day- In his landscapes
one can truly feel the breeze and smell the grass- The foggy
winter morning scenes are cold and the sunny landscapes warm
and brilliant. To carefully observe a Zulfi painting is to be there!
The artist is the recipient of the Presidents Pride of Performance
award. He has several solo and group shows to his credit and
his paintings are in major collections home and abroad.
In keeping with its tradition of offering quality art to its patrons,
Tanzara presents Zulfi’s latest work.
We look forward to seeing you at the opening!
