More Images from Lahore by Artist Mahboob Ali

Mahboob Ali, the only woodcut artist of Pakistan has sent me more images of his works. During our recent meeting in Lahore, he also told me how, over the decades, his work progressed and how hard he has tried to train more woodcut artists. I have posted several images of his works here and introduced him here.

Mahboob Ali is an intriguing yet simple personality with stories and real-life experiences of the intensive process of making woodcuts. Once can spend hours watching him use his hands and creative imagination.

The image below is extremely representative of his work. This work shows a contemporary picture of what happens outside one of the historical gates of old Lahore (the walled city).

More images here.

I will write more about our recent meeting later.
