Khaas Art was founded on a deep commitment to the concept of art in its many forms. It has grown not just because of a passion, but also through an enduring belief in the positive impact of art and culture on a society and its people – an influence that is both humanizing and insightful. With this firmly in mind, Khaas Art aims to exhibit and promote art that represents the zeitgeist of today, so that we better understand our present and embrace our tomorrows. This is the ethos and primary identity of Khaas Art.
The contemporary art gallery is a wholly different entity to the traditional art gallery, both in its philosophy and in its methodology. Whilst a traditional art gallery focuses on artists whose works have a proven commercial success and are immediately saleable, the contemporary art gallery is largely delving in the unknown, with a view to the future. This results in an eye for innovation and break-through “edgy” art. Consequently, the clientele of a contemporary art gallery is more open-minded and experimental and- as a result - less willing to settle for the established or the conventional.
Khaas Art is committed to this opening of minds by making the viewing and collecting of art pleasurable and accessible to all. The Gallery’s repertoire of work – whilst concentrating on the more avant garde, the more innovative and the more experimental – includes an array of contemporary painting, drawing, printmaking, sculpture, photography, installation and video art. Khaas Art has inevitably been the gallery that artists have naturally gravitated towards, in order to show their most exciting and innovative work. Khaas Art has held a series of ground breaking and cutting-edge shows and has provided a platform for many young artists who are now recognized and highly collectible.
Respected art critics, scholars, artists, established and emerging collectors, and young students just looking to enhance their senses, are all among our valued audience. The clientele for contemporary art has increased exponentially in Pakistan and Khaas Art is proud to have been a critical element of this process. Established and emerging collectors and purveyors of contemporary Pakistani art now seek out Khaas Art for the dedicated space it offers to innovation.
