Ali Saad

Pakistan

Born 1989, in a small valley of Baluchistan , called Quetta. My name is Ali Saad, since my childhood i’ve been brought up in an environment where i had easy access to books of Literature and Art. My father, an Associate Professor of English Literature and Language passed on the best Literature to us three brother, every evening, over a cup of tea which became almost a ritual, was the moment of our interest. The tete-a-tete went round only Literature and Painting. I used to replicate illustrations from story books. With constant drawing practice in which I grew better and better. Thus participating in Art Competitions till my high school.
Just by odd luck, after my intermediate I went to a Business University and studied Economics, while still keeping a keen interest in Art. Again by strange quick of luck the selection team from the renowned NCA College Lahore came to our city for the selection of the suitable candidates for the college. Endowed with the natural gift of Art in me I took the competition test and was placed at number one of the list of the candidates. I graduated from the said Art College in the 1st division with an “Honour” . My thesis Work was keenly observed and praised. The accolade that I won throughout the following years through the art exhibitions done nationally and internationally, with my recent participation in the Venice Biennale.
