Grosvenor Gallery is exhibiting the extraordinary work of Jameel Prize winner Ghulam Mohammad – Peeha (Grind), and his first Solo show from 9 – 29th May 2018, in association with Canvas Gallery, Karachi. Ghulam Mohammad is trained in traditional miniature painting techniques and with this help, he creates extremely delicate collage works using Urdu letters cut from second books. By this playful reconstruction, he aims to enrich it with a new aesthetic meaning.
