Neelum Aftab

I am a fine artist and my work links with the concept of Third Space’as coined by the cultural theorist Homi K Bhabha. I have portrayed group portraiture and conceptual figures at different phases of cultural transformation, cultural hybridisation, migration and displacement.

My work represents diaspora of ethnic minorities in general and South Asian diaspora in particular. The element of race and colour is evident in my work, where ethnic origin has taken over the ethnic traditions. The artistic journey is not ended yet and it is now towards finding something spiritual and eternal for these figures.
