Calligraphy of Sadequain (1930 – 1987)

Sadequain (1930 – 1987) received international acclaim during the early 1960s, when he was recognized as the “Laureate Binnale de Paris” in 1961, and also chosen to illustrate the novel, titled The Stranger, written by Nobel Laureate Albert Camus in 1964. He received widely positive coverage in the media in Europe and the USA and he was compared to Picasso in the French press when living in Paris during the 1960s. Later, during 1974 and 1975, Sadequain had highly successful exhibition tours of the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Sadequain is practically a household name in his native Pakistan, but since his last exhibition tours, he has become virtually unknown in the Western world.
