The World Is Yours, the World Is Mine –

The World Is Yours, the World Is Mine – “My painting explores multiple modes of storytelling from the vantage point of New York City, a place of integration and turmoil that is still coming to terms with its underrepresented narratives, including its African-American history. Many issues arise: not just questions of wealth and class, but of trade, global economics, crime, capitalism, race and personal identity.” –Shahzia Sikander, was born in Pakistan and studied Indo-Persian miniature painting under a traditional master at The National College of Arts in Lahore, and later attended The Rhode Island School of Design.
