Mughal Portrait

May-June 2022

Lu Xiang Yi Studio

Conducted over four weeks in conjunction with “Siyah Qalam Animals” course, this workshop focused on understanding the aesthetic of human forms in the Mughal school, and developing artistry for nuanced expressions. Students followed traditional processes, from paper preparation to finishing a portrait painting with decorated borders. The workshop culminated in a discussion about the way of practice to nurture introspection, and creating new meanings in traditional medium.
