Art: Sacrifice and Eternal Wait in Sadeqauin’s paintings

Sadequain

Sadequain (1930 – 1987) is Pakistan’s foremost painter. Besides being a skilled calligrapher and a poet, his mastery lay in transforming famous Urdu poems and couplets into all-revealing paintings.

Faiz Ahmed Faiz, the great poet, says about Sadequain’s work, “With the commencement of his phantasmagorical exploration of form and substance, there emerges a series of abstract visual statements, strong and subtle, stripping, anatomising and recreating the skeletal forms beneath the visual flesh — skeletons of streets and cities, weeds and plants, men and women.”

Below are six of his paintings which have become synonymous with his name.
