Hina Khan

Hina Khan’s work is the constant search for the best way to interpret ideas and express ideologies through symbolism. Having completed a BFA (Bachelor in Fine Arts) from F. G Degree College, she completed a MFA (Masters in Fine Arts) from FJWU (Fatima Jinnah Women University), Pakistan in 2003, with Miniature Painting as Major. Using a mixture of traditional and innovative techniques, Hina’s work portrays social issues, immigration and humanitarian crisis like prostitution, gender discrimination, restrictions, trauma, child abuse and killing.

She has exhibited widely in both Pakistan and Ireland including solo exhibitions at Ballina Art Centre, Mayo and Stradbally Art Centre. She has been awarded residencies with Fire Station Arts Centre, Create Ireland, Uillinn West Cork Art Centre and Cow House Studio. Most recently she is the recipient of two awards: CREATE/Arts Council R&D in collaboration with Tomasz Madajczak under the mentorship of Jesse Jones and Creative Ireland Award, Cork County Council collaborating with Film Maker David Bickley. She has also participated with Madajczak in the Mother Tongues Festival 2021, with a live performance.
