    ARTIST INFO
    Nida Bangash is an artist formally trained in the miniature discipline at the National College of Art. Based in Pakistan, and of part Iranian parentage, she has also gained experiential knowledge over the years of carpet weaving and miniature painting in Mashhad, Iran. Currently she is amidst completing her MA (Hons) Visual Art in Lahore and researching towards a new body of work.
    Nida has exhibited her work both nationally and internationally. Drawing from her traditional skills and techniques, she continuously evolves her medium and questions the perimeters of her practice. Her thematic considerations range from the abstract to the blatant, political to the apolitical and ephemeral to the structural. Her interdisciplinary approach to work creates an overall sensory experience for an audience, thus, enabling them to rediscover the obvious.
