Born in Karachi, Pakistan, Sara Khan Pathan received a BFA with distinction from Karachi University in 2007. Her art is born from her resolute devotion to Pakistan and her desire to see its artistic traditions, mainly miniature painting, evolve to address the socio-political complexities of its contemporary reality. Her practice explores the meaning, nature and impacts of violence within the context of Karachi. She has participated in numerous exhibitions in Pakistan and internationally. She currently teaches miniature painting and animation at the Visual Studies Department at Karachi University.
