Receiving his BFA (Miniature Painting) is 2003 from the prestigious National College of arts, Lahore, Pakistan, Muhammad Zeeshan is a critically acclaimed visual artist.
Zeeshan’s curatorial practice heralds the dawn of a new ethos in art, one that highlights elements of concern. His curated shows are as provocative as they are evocative and they challenge the viewer to participate in ways that they are not used to. He has conceptualised several residencies and been a mentor to their young participants. His curatorial opus is to empower sidelined talent with opportunities and access that they did not have before, working with artist and institutes that may not have been open to them before. Zeeshan has several gallery, Art Fair, museum and institutional exhibitions to his credit including exhibitions at Nasher Museum of Art at Duke University, Herbert F. Johnson Museum at Cornell University, Abbot Hall Art Gallery at Kendal, Pacific Asia Art Museum at Pasadena, Art Gallery of Mississauga, British Museum, Gemak/Gemeente Museum, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum and Metropolitan Museum at Tokyo. He has been represented at the Dubai Art Fair, India Art Fair, Hong Kong Art Basel and Pulse Art Fair. Zeeshan’s works are also a part of the permanent collection of British Museum, Fukuoka Asian Art Museum, Pacific Asia Art Museum at Pasadena and The Metropolitan Museum of Art, New York.
Zeeshan lives and works in Karachi, Pakistan.
