Ammara Rafique, a Lahore-based visual artist, earned her MFA in Visual Arts in 2022. Specializing in abstract miniature drawings, she showcased her work internationally, including exhibitions in Baku, Azerbaijan, and Art Soch Contemporary. Rafique participated in online art exhibitions and various group shows, receiving recognition in awards like Arjumand and Anna Molka.
Her art, currently exhibited in Islamabad and Lahore, reflects her philosophy of nature’s interconnectedness and life’s transformations. Using a decaying pen on paper, she captures lines that symbolize calmness and peace. White signifies serenity, while black represents sophistication, firmness, and emotion, defying stereotypes associated with darkness. Rafique, also a visiting faculty at GCU Fine Arts Department, explores the profound truths in both nature and contemporary complexities.
