An exhibition called “Rebel Angel” opened at the Mohatta Palace museum on May 18. The exhibition displays the works of the late Asim Butt, a young artist from Karachi who passed away last year.
Butt was a modern artist and a member of the Stuckist art movement. He is also known for his graffiti art, through which he subversively expressed his social and political views. Though he was in his early thirties when he died, he was prolific and had already gained a reputation as an intelligent and innovative artistic mind.
The exhibition is open till July 31 and features Butt’s paintings, murals and other works from various collections, as well as a viewing of a short documentary feature about him. – Text and Photography by Nadir Siddiqui
