‘Pakistan Chawk’ recognized in Germany

Karachi: A famous German institute has published a thesis by  a young Pakistani, Ahmed Aleem, on the topic of local culture and design. The dissertation titled ‘Pakistan Chawk’ explores artwork of designers in the old city area of Karachi.

The former student of Indus Valley School of Arts Karachi said his quest to learn about the skills of artists in this area took shape in the form of the ‘Pakistan Chawk.’ He added that the acknowledgement by a German publisher gave a more heightened sense of achievement.

Ahmed, associated with Pakistan’s oldest advertising agency Lowe & Rauf, said, “I am amazed every time I visit ‘Pakistan Chawk’ and observe artists delivering professional work without any professional training…”

Nisar A Moosa a trainer at ‘Rahshown’ an institute for human development commented, “[The work] is a tribute to an entire generation, and will encourage young artists to introduce Pakistani culture in foreign countries.”
