Everyone’s excited about Waqas Khan. After all he was one of the youngest nominees for the Jameel Prize 3, the Islamic Turner prize, if you like. At Dubai art fair 2014, where we met him for an interview, the excitement was about the way his work contrasted with everything else on show; these were pieces you really had to see in person because of the minuteness of the detail. Ironically, the quietest work can create the greatest clamour.
Waqas Khan born in Akhtarabad, now lives and works in the capital Lahore, in Pakistan. From there he graduated with a BA in Fine Arts from the National College of Arts, 2008 trained in miniature painting style.
