KARACHI, March 6: ‘Moods of Women’, an exhibition of paintings by Mehtab Ali, opens at Citi art gallery on Wednesday at 5.30pm. On show will be 27 oil-on-canvas ingenious figurative artworks.

The artist put diverse shades of oriental women’s dispositions on canvas via textured oil paintings. A Karachi University graduate, he is at present working as a Director of Fine Arts Department, “Our Future World” Institute of the Japanese language.

His latest collection, ‘Moods of Oriental Women’, with a touch of impressionism is unique and very different from his past paintings.
