Komail Aijazuddin

Gold Cube, 2018
Site-specific installation, new commission

Komail Aijazuddin lives and works in between New York, USA and Lahore, Pakistan.
Aijazuddin is a visual artist and writer. His work uses the vocabulary of traditional religious art – gold leaf, illuminations, altar pieces, paintings, scrolls, votive objects – to investigate contemporary ideas of divinity, belief, religion, worship, identity, statehood, belonging, and the question of what constitutes personal faith.
Aijazuddin holds degrees in Studio Art and Art History from New York University and has an MFA from the Pratt Institute, New York.
