"MIRRORING FANTASY "AN EXHIBITION OF A NEW SERIES OF PAINTINGS BY ACCLAIMED ARTIST, AHMED ALI MANGANHAR, OPENS AT CANVAS GALLERY ON TUESDAY FEBRUARY 3RD 2015, FROM 5 PM - 8 PM.

ORIGINALLY HAILING FROM TANDO ALLAH YAR IN SINDH, MANGANHAR, A GRADUATE FROM THE PRESTIGIOUS NATIONAL COLLEGE OF ARTS, LAHORE, IS CURRENTLY BASED IN LAHORE

"I WENT TO LIVE AND WORK IN THE INNER CITY OF LAHORE FOR THE SAME REASONS THAT MANY PEOPLE HAVE GONE THERE BEFORE ME: FASCINATED BY THE LIVES OF WOMEN OF ENTERTAINMENT AND THE CULTURE THEY BRED IN THE AREA. BUT LIVING THERE TAUGHT ME ABOUT RELATIONSHIPS TO PEOPLE WHO SEEMED MORE AND MORE LIKE MYSELF. I DREW THE AREA WHERE WE ALL LIVED FROM THE ROOFTOP WHERE I SAT EACH EVENING. I HAVE PAINTED OUR COLLECTIVE MEMORY AND THE LOST FANTASIES OF FILMS THAT WERE ONCE AND STILL ARE PART OF MY VISUAL REPERTOIRE."

THE SHOW REMAINS OPEN DAILY UNTIL THURSDAY FEBRUARY 12TH 2015, FROM 11 AM - 8 PM (SUNDAYS CLOSED)
