    Does anyone know if these artists have galleries online?

    Ahem. Jamash, thanks for bringing color and art back here. VM Art gallery is indeed well-managed and a pleasant place.

    And three are quite a few, but unpublicised, online Pakistani art galleries. Google ART + Pakistan. A few online galleries also sell the art – I’ll write back when I recall the www’s… forgetting at the mo.

    And please, do consider deleting ALL wayward, offensive, personal comments.

    The readers who are looking for information and comments on the topic deserve to enjoy themselves in a grafitti-free environment. They are the ones who end up with a bad taste in the mouth.

    I am really sorry for those comments, actually sometime you have to use rough langauge to deal with those kind of miscreants. ACTUALLY THEY ONLY UNDERSTAND THAT KIND OF LANGUAGE.

    Thank you for your comments(Good Ones Only) and support

    @ Faisal : I don’t think any of them have an online art galley, they are all fresh Graduates of NCA.

    Jamash…Can you ask our emergining artists why they use names in English. Not that I am against it. I feel some originality gets lost in the way.

    even though im now part of the otherside… i dont condone censorship in any way or form… no matter what was written.. i mean, isnt that the whole reason we’ve got the campaign against blocking of blogspot?!

    lets not be hypocrites here…

    Mansoor, as some linguists are beginning to disclose, language has developed to yield some of most undetectable but real tyranny. Take for instance slogans that people live and die by – often to the amusement of their following generations later.

    People who came up with concept were humans, and not perfect. And even if they were, their context of application of their theories has to be applied with the theory. The concept of “freedom of opinion,” like other things, requires originality of thinking in application.

    Insulting, being rude, producing nonsense is not conversation. For every one person who admires this as a freedom, there are ten who do not.

    What I simply don’t understand is why we’d come up with a statement like “freedom of opinion” and stick to it as if notions drive people rather than the other way round? Humanity isn’t designed to bear with abuse of self-created slogans. The measure of any philosophy is this: is it making the world a better place? Or for the sake of one foul-mouthed artist, ten people are pulling their hair and somehow trying to live in the delusion that it’s OK?

    It’s not OK. The prime example was the cartoon controversy case where Muslims spoke ourselves hoarse saying exactly the same thing. There is nothing hypocritical about using one’s common sense and good taste.

    At least for one, I do not let any xyz theory dictate to me what I should accept or reject when my good sense and humanity is pointing me in the other direction.

    I hope you post this Jamash.

    Actually @ nocturnal@poopoo you need to watch your mouths when you call somone a TRANGRESSOR they might actually turn into one. Does that make you transgender? Just asking. HAHAHA

  11. sophia (unregistered) on June 24th, 2006 @ 6:34 am

    By the way @nocturnal you need to apologize to your poor dead mother for being such a HYPOCRITE why don’t you guys give me your addreses I stayed in Federal B area when I visited last time thats wher majority of my family lives. I’m sure my cousins there would love to meet you. I lived in an area where YOU can’t even walk through YOU COWARDS

  12. nocturnal (unregistered) on June 24th, 2006 @ 5:37 pm

    @ sophia the TRANSGRESSOR

    and by the way your boy friend(EX_DEE) is really stupid hahaha.

    And how is your business giong.hmmm

    you need to watch your mouths when you call somone a TRANGRESSOR they might actually turn into one.

    To be honest I am not least intrested to get engaged with sophia due to her offensive and illetrate attitude but the point she raised is 100% true and it happens.Its like a muslim say kafir to another muslim(we used to say this,ain’t we?) or keep forcing for some religious act.In return he/she gets so pissed that he/she starts hating that act or that religion.There are stories of apostates who left Islam due to this act of people in their surrounding.

    I think Nocturnal you should control your tounge and since you and sophia both swearing each other,you guys dont deserve to advise each other anyway.I can’t say anything to sophia since she has already crossed her limits by every mean but i hope you would control your anger and would react in similar tone.

    umm,if you and sophia are not married then I think you guys should seriously think about getting married with each other or by with someone else.Its not a sarcasm or insult,its a serious advice for both of you.

    noncturnal and sophia: while i am a proponent of free speech and all, there are other means better suited for your personal rivalry. KMB not being one of them.

    ramla: you do make very valid points, but your basic premise is, the ones making the decision of whether to allow or disallow someting as “common sense and good taste” are actually rational enough to make the decision. The very fact that humans are flawed and prone to errors being the driving force behind my statement.

    for the sake of one foul-mouthed artist, ten people are pulling their hair and somehow trying to live in the delusion the only problem i see here is with the artist not choosing the most appropriate way (to the liking of the 10 other people) of expressing him/herself. On the otherhand, what this artist is expressing is an opinion and as such should be allowed. Again, i would bring into play the premise that humans are flawed for both the artist (using foul language) and 10 people (acting erractically?). The ten people are free to live as they please, and if for the reason of this one artist, they choose delusion, then that’s their flaw.

    i hope you see where im going with this…

  15. Ramla A. (unregistered) on June 25th, 2006 @ 2:08 am

    @ Mansoor. I am not talkig about foul language per se, but non-conversations.

    Apart from that, I don’t understand that long thing you’ve written.
