Join us at T2F for an exhibition of Zahoor’s political cartoons
Opening: Saturday, 10th Jan 2009 | 6:00 pm
Muhammad Zahoor, one of Pakistan’s leading cartoonists, thrives on contentious social and political issues. With a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Peshawar University, Zahoor kicked off his career at The Frontier Post. In the company of editors like Aziz Siddiqui and Mahir Ali, and cartoonists like Feica and Vai Ell, Zahoor developed his political ideas and started expressing his views through caricatures and sketches.
Pakistan’s checkered history of military rule, a beleaguered economy, rising fundamentalism, and debilitating poverty have provided Zahoor with a limitless stream of subject matter. Now at The Daily Times, he continues to be a voice of resistance, speaking out against injustice and corruption through his cartoons.
Amongst other accolades, Zahoor has won the APNS Award for Best Cartoon four times. He recently participated in the first-ever Himal South Asia Regional Cartoon Congress, held in Kathmandu, Nepal in November 2008 and his cartoon was chosen for the Top 20 Editor’s Pick list.
Please join us this Saturday for the opening of an exhibition of Zahoor’s cartoons. Zahoor will be in Karachi for one day only so don’t miss the opportunity to meet with him.
T2F’s opening hours are noon to midnight and the gallery is closed on Mondays.
