Selections of works by Omar Farid were displayed at VM gallery on 15th August 2018. The chosen work dated back from 1972 till 2018, with each of his unique work portraying his “kahani”. Omar Fraid attended the Central Institute of Arts and Crafts, Karachi, where modern masters of Pakistani art majorly influenced his work. During his earlier years, when he had recently showed interest towards arts, his work was strictly established as “ridiculous, unreal and controversial”. However, despite such criticism his work evolved and produced a body of work that looked like “a roller coaster ride”, as remarked by his friend.
