Exposition Art Blog: Abdul Rahim Nagori

Abdul Rahim Nagori

Prof. Abdul Rahim Nagori (1939 – January 14, 2011) was a Pakistani painter known for his socio-political themes. He has held one-man exhibitions since 1958. He taught at the University of Sindh in Jamshoro, Pakistan where he founded and headed the department of Fine Arts. He was honoured with President’s Pride of Performance Award announced on August 14, 2010. Nagori’s paintings were never intended to please or to decorate the walls, yet the beauty of sensual textures and adept simplification of form were an inherent factor in his work, as were his uncompromising statements, rich with meanings. His exhibition mounted at the Indus Gallery, Karachi, in the ’80s when his scheduled exhibition in Islamabad was cancelled, made history.(paintersofpakistan.wordpress.com)
