Imran Qureshi is known for his beautifully crafted paintings which portray a delicate repetition of decorative motifs and figurative elements. Influenced by the Mugal heritage of miniature paintings, Qureshi has evolved his own personal iconography which suffuse his paintings and more recently his site-specific installations. Often referred to by the artist as “leakages”, these temporary painted installations pervade public settings, from a mosque in Singapore to a palace in Afghanistan, with repeated patterns of blue foliage, simultaneously poetic and politically charged. Qureshi's foliage recurs throughout his work, from his small abstract miniatures and works on paper to this edition for the ICA.
Imran Qureshi, born in 1972, lives and works in Lahore, Pakistan. The artist was awarded the prestigious Sharjah Biennial 10 Premier Prize (2011) for his installation Blessings Upon the Land of My Love.
