Pakistani contemporary art in India

At present, the term ‘Contemporary Art in Pakistan’ covers an extremely broad and diverse spectrum. In the early years of independent Pakistan, colonial influences fused with the inevitable post-colonial quest for regional identity to produce a very distinct traditionalism. However, the last several years have seen the emergence of yet another kind of art, which is in touch with international artistic currents, less focused on parochial issues of genre and identity and more geared towards the understanding and mindsets of today’s more globalised audiences.
