Rubaba Haider

Rubaba Haider is a contemporary artist based in Melbourne, Australia. The artist, who studied miniature painting in Pakistan at the prestigious National College of Arts, Lahore, Pakistan was forced to seek refuge in Australia due to the persecution of her people.
 
Haider has witnessed how fragile the ties that bind communities, relationships and bodies together can be and expresses this vulnerability through intricate renderings of cloth and thread on paper using gouache and pencil.
 
The artist’s work has been shown in group exhibitions both in Australia and overseas and is held in a number of private collections in Europe, the subcontinent and Australia. 2014 marks the artist’s debut solo exhibition.
