Jinga Art - A Dream Of Peace Series - Art

Fareeha Khawaja's Jinga Art - A Dream Of Peace series is a study and fusion of whimsical and contemporary folk art, inspired by the fantasy folk "Truck Art" of Pakistan. Jinga paintings are an intriguing amalgam of jovial moods, glitzy flamboyant colors, simple blatant emotions, inscrutable tales, ethnic themes and unfathomable mysteries of the distant lands. Popular art in Pakistan is often found not in art galleries, but on vehicles, particularly trucks that can be seen on the streets. It is also known as Art on wheels. This striking mixed media art illustrates whimsical, traditional, social, political, realistic and folk themes sometimes combined with romantic poetic verses and clever doggerel. Animals, flowers, birds, monkeys, figurative portraits, eyes (to ward off the evil eye), landscapes, loud colored designs, winged horses, peacocks and fairies are only some of the amazing pictures on these traveling canvases. Fareeha''s Jinga paintings restate fables of love and happiness, unusual passions, courage, lore, traditions, friendship, simple life, tranquility and brotherhood, passed on from generation to generation. They are a narration of conventional happy hours Gup-Shup around the Hookah on Charpai, smoke out of chimney, nostalgic folk tunes playing on the radio, a beating Dhol, sound of Rubab, hubble-bubble, chirping birds and Jingly Trucks. Jinga brings the promise of life, love, peace & harmony.
