Hifza Khan, a visual artist and art educator from Rawalpindi, completed her BFA with honors in Miniature Painting from the National College of Arts, Lahore, in 2012. Currently a Visiting Faculty at National College of Arts Rawalpindi, she has showcased her work in various group shows across Lahore, Islamabad, and Karachi. With experience in book illustration and titles, her select exhibitions include “Breaking the Mould,” “Common Dimensions,” “Recollection,” “Revelation,” and “Climate Chronicles.”
Aside from her academic roles, Hifza has worked as an art instructor at Lahore Grammar School Paragon Campus and as a Senior Art teacher at Beaconhouse School System Islamabad. She has undertaken private projects and completed a calligraphy commission for the Imam Bargah Hali Road, Lahore, in 2020. Some of her artworks are housed in the permanent collection of Ambiance Boutique Art Hotel Karachi.
Hifza’s artistic focus centers on feminine emotions, empowerment, and their existence in the world. Her imaginative realms draw inspiration from nature, using imagery to convey displacement and relocation. Recently, she incorporated pomegranate as a symbol of purity and fertility in her work. Nature serves as a source of emotional expression, allowing her to understand herself and reflect on the purpose of being. Her art is characterized by a marriage of painting style, inspiration from nature, and a reflection of the brighter side of life. The compositions emphasize emotional healing and the mystery of creation.
