It has become an artistic ritual for me to go to Rangoonwala Comunity Center every week in search of art since it makes me feel complete and serves a way to discover myself each step at a time. It's a great place for anyone who wants to polish up their artistic skills and the owners are doing a marvellous job by serving the society well, considering the courses are so cost effective. Well, I attend art classes there under the supervision of Mr. Hanif Shahzad who himself is a renowned artist and gems like him are rare who prefer making art accessible in terms of education without any commercial gain or any self serving motive.

The V. M Art Gallery there recently hosted the 14th Emerging Talent Exhibition 2016 and gave the highly talented emerging artists a chance to showcase their awe inspiring work. Words can't do justice to these exceptional minds that are reaching new heights already.

Below are the pictures of some of the finest works of art Pakistan has:

For the following piece of art, the artists has collected layers of net and printed various gestures of these sportsmen and later merged these layers to depict motion in a phenomenal style. Here I missed out on the name behind this work. Sorry, artist.















Just look at how realistic this artist has made the glare and the droplets on glass. It's a superb painting indeed. Also following this is another painting made along the same theme.

This painting is the most thought provoking painting which is also probably the reason it won the first prize. It simply shows the intellect level of the artist. It's simply a WOW thing!
