The Second Floor hosted its usual Jumma Hafta Art Bazaar, wherein artists and craftsmen tend to come under one roof and display their products and artworks showcasing their skills. Being part of the one last year, This time around, the Bazaar was bigger, better and much more fun with the deals that were being offered by the vendors and paintings by the artists. Residing the midst was the installation by an NCA grad, who had created an abandoned room in the middle of the room accompanied with the right amount of light and accessories (broken chair and switchboard) it was one of the highlights of the show. Furthermore the regular artists, Rania, Shamira Mahpara along with artists including Sarah Bakhtiyar, Isma Ahmed (ceramist) and Nazar ul Islam (who made these miniature sculptures out of lead, crayons and metal, brilliantly finished and totally fierce) displayed an array of their works on this two day bazaar. Live portrait sketching and paintings added the perfect dose of surrealism of these two artists going about their pieces despite the commotion around them. Craftsmen included people from Ajrak Makers and Pottery makers from Hala. However one of the series that caught my eye was the painting series that had painted shoots of Bollywood actresses by Fatima. Also Artpreneurs for change ( an oorganization that trains children with disabilities to use art as a theurapetic medium) displayed works by these children. Later in the evening Adnan Malik’s music video MY PUNJABI LOVE was screened outside. The event was a definite crowd puller as it was too crowded and it took me a while to find my way around but I did snag up a vintage tea box (which I saved from the truck art CHAMAK PATTI, no it doesnt look good on everything), two ceramic containers and two ajrakh pieces.
