Karachi- based, Sammer Sultan attended the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi (2007 – 2010) where she completed her Bachelor’s in Fine Arts with a major in Painting and Sculpture.
The artist has experimented with various mediums; from installations with tissue paper to digital art, the artist does not restrict herself. The artist’s practise is diverse both in subject matter and execution. Furthermore, her work has been described as containing “poise.”
Sultan most commonly studies human sentiments and relations. She claims to be “looking at both the micro and macro perspectives” of human relationships. She talks about numerous and varying issues such as the status of women in society and misogyny, the loss of a loved one and other life-changing events.
“My work aims to look at the choices we make, or are forced to make in various situations. I (use) a juxtaposition of radically different ideas, the result of which may or may not be absurd,” claims the artist.
Sultan’s work was displayed in the show Nine Lives at Khaas Gallery, Islamabad (2012).
