Peace and blessings be upon you all

I’ve posted about Islamabad Art Festival previously in a post but there is still so much more that I want to show you about it.

This event took place at around the end of November, I’m posting it quite late so incase you missed out on this event, be sure to go through all this amazing art work and try to attend next year’s IAF. Until then, enjoy!!

A drawing by Tanveer Farooqi made from a special kind of ink pen (where you dip the pen in ink). He has made many portraits of popular people in Pakistan simply from ink pens (which can be of different colours)
