Waqas Khan was born in Akhtarabad, Pakistan. Having trained in the miniature style, he is skilled in the delicate art of printmaking. Using small and precise marks on paper, he creates forms and shapes that seem to extend into infinity. At his studio in Lahore, Khan describes the painstaking process that enables him to create works that evolve from simple dots into patterns and compositions. His drawings are built up from ideas and concepts obtained from Muslim, Hindu and Sufi traditions.
