Artist of the Year 2013

Imran Qureshi (*1972) is regarded one of the most important representatives of Pakistan’s art scene. Schooled in miniature painting, he employs motifs, symbolism, and ornamentation from the Mogul tradition, which blossomed in the north of the Indian subcontinent during the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries. In his unique way, Qureshi combines traditional motifs and techniques with conceptual ideas and contemporary, abstract painting. Observations of reality in contemporary Pakistan flow into his work: reflections on the relationship between the West and the Muslim world, religion, terrorism, and war policy.

With its annual Artist of the Year award, the Deutsche Bank honors promising international artists who, in individual ways, address social issues and have already created an independent, outstanding oeuvre that also includes works on paper and photography.

Exhibition schedule: Deutsche Bank Kunsthalle, Berlin, March–mid-June 2013
