CFAW's Artist of the Month
July'23 - Marium Aslam.
Opening doors to emerging artists is an opening to the future of culture and conversation. The thrill and beauty of finding art, being able to provide agency and a home to these artists is always going to be the highlight of my career. There is so much beauty in the world that demands celebration so why not start now?
Centre for Art Based Methodologies & Wellbeing started its “Artist of the Month” program June 2023. Our program is to curate and house as many emerging artists as possible and have them displayed for a month at Nani Ghar, CFAW. Everyone is invited to join and celebrate beauty with us.
Mariam Aslam is a GEM indeed. Her work speaks of her so much that its like a view into the kaleidoscope of Mariam’s emotions. You can find conflict, acceptance, resilience and strength with her life’s story in different mediums. It takes great strength and curiosity to challenge oneself with a variety of mediums and explore art and emotional connection. Join me in celebrating Mariam Aslam this July at CFAW. Let’s celebrate art again.
Marium Aslam is a Karachi-based artist. She works with various mediums and usually starts with drawings that end up as beautifully, finished paintings. Marium has been exploring different mediums to enhance her artistic expression. Her practice revolves around humanoid poses, portraiture, narratives and observations from her personal, emotional journey.
Marium has used art as a therapy tool and firmly believes that it is a method of rescue. For her, art is a platform to externalize her inner turmoil. Marium’s artworks are expressions of her lived experiences that inspired her to draw and explore her subjects. Her work primarily focuses on people, their emotional journeys and how they navigate through the different complexities of their lives.
Marium Aslam’s work has been showcased previously at the Ahmed Pervaiz Art Gallery at Arts Council, Karachi and Art TV Pakistan’s Online Exhibition. She also has been a part of various art competitions including GEMMA where she was awarded the third position in their mural art contest in 2020.
Marium Aslams's work will be on display at Nani Ghar, CFAW from 7th July 2023 to 25th July 2023. You are all invited to the Exhibition Opening to come and celebrate art with us.
Marium will also host a Heart 2 Art workshop at Nani Ghar on 14th July 2023. Please follow our Instagram page for further details and updates.
