M. Musa Nassar Ghaznavi
M. Musa Nassar Ghaznavi was born in Genolier, Switzerland, and has lived in seven countries since, but he is mostly from Lahore, Pakistan. His artistic practice draws from a myriad of experiences and takes a diversity of forms. Across film, painting, drama, and garment construction, his work is rooted in an enduring preoccupation with the human body and the passage of time.
His painting practice serves to deconstruct these experiences into sublime imagery that forms part of a collective memory. Through composition and the application of color, his paintings create their own stories of cultural heritage and situate themselves within the landscape of memories.
Ghaznavi has recently been admitted to the Master of Design program at the School of the Art Institute of Chicago.
