Ayesha Jatoi is a visual artist whose practice comments on mainly art making itself and often questions the relevance of traditional modes of working today. Trained as a Miniature painter and photographer at the National College of the Arts in Lahore, Jatoi’s work shares a fascination with manuscripts and the spatial divisions of the of “illuminated page”. Of late, text has started to play a very dominant role in all her work, often freeing itself all together of the image. Jatoi was also a founder editor of the Journal of Contemporary Art & Culture published from Lahore, Pakistan
