Death anniversary of painter artist Eqbal Mehdi being observed today

KARACHI: The sixteenth death anniversary of painter artist Eqbal Mehdi being observed today.

Eqbal Mehdi was a realistic artist. In the most general sense the term is often applied to works, which, instead of choosing conventionally beautiful subjects, depict ugly things or at least scenes from the life of the poorer classes. Eqbal Mehdi’s enormous body of work includes portraits, horses, Moorish street scenes and landscapes.He is recipient of President’s Award for Pride of Performance.

He paints beautiful subjects, especially when he works on maidens and portraits of the generals, rulers and ladies of high profile. He idealizes their profiles on his canvases. He can peep into the minds of his subjects and paints them the way they imagine their person and personality.

He died due to kidney failure on this day in Rawalpindi and buried in Karachi.
