Born in 1982 into an art-loving family, Sana Arjumand was interested in the arts from a young age. One of her earliest memories is going with her mother to a screen printing workshop at the Wamiq centre in Karachi. She remembers looking up from her hiding place under the table and watching her mother apply maroon color onto the screen. Her father when not at work used to paint, and both parents have been a strong influence in her artistic development. She studied at the National College of Arts in Lahore, graduating in 2005.
She has enjoyed critical acclaim in the short years since, with many successful shows and residencies. Her 2009 residency at Art Omi in New York was one of her favorites to date: “Omi was once in a life time type of an experience. It is every artists dream come true. I made some amazing friends that I would love to see again.” Also in New York, her exhibition of ‘Let’s fly first class’at Aicon Gallery was a fantastic experience for Arjumand. Locally, her first solo exhibition was held at Canvas Gallery in Karachi and was well received and widely covered. After marriage Arjumand has had a number of exhibitions internationally including in Sydney, Dubai and Mumbai.
