Hailing from a family of Sufi poets and creative individuals, Ali Karimi developed a predilection for the arts. The artist’s affinity for the creative arts and his experience of working at the Sindhology Museum, Jamshoro determined his journey from Tando Mohammad Khan, Sindh to Lahore where he received formal training in Miniature Painting at the National College of Arts (2009-2013).
Karimi feels that in order to completely understand something you have to deconstruct it – disturb the thought process with activity and eventually put it back together again. Karimi manipulates his compositions to see how the viewer reacts to it. He plays with his images to investigate the relationship between negative and positive spaces, the effect of three dimensionality and shift in the equilibrium of a composition.
Ali Karimi’s work was a part of Kit and Kaboodle at Khaas Art Gallery, Islamabad (2014).
