Nasser Azam: Saiful Malook

A new series of abstract paintings have gone on display at the Saatchi Gallery.

The artist Nasser Azam embarked on a pilgrimage to Lake Saiful Malook in Kashmir, after being inspired by a poem of the same name by Mian Muhammad Bakhsh. 

He created large-scale artworks based on his interpretation of the poem, and created some of the paintings on the banks of the lake itself. 

Azam visited Saiful Malook in August 2018, with British Indian composer Soumik Datta and British Indian photographer and filmmaker Souvid Datta. Each artist created work in situ on the banks of the lake, one of the highest in the country.

Nasser Azam: Saiful Malook will be on display at the Saatchi Gallery from 30 May to 10 June 2019.
