Red Bull recently hosted the ‘Red Bull Canvas Cooler’ event which brought together 12 of Pakistan’s most innovative artists together.
The event was held at the Riots Studio in Lahore. The artists were required to showcase their skills by converting blank Red Bull coolers into pieces of art.
The event was made possible with the help of Zain Naqvi, a National College of Arts (NCA) graduate who curated the event.
The participants were given two weeks period to work on their individual projects. Their projects would then be displayed on the 17th and 18th of December at the venue.
The participants included:
- Jibran Shahid
- Samya Arif
- Ayesha Sohail
- Raza Bukhari
- Babrus Khan
- Osama Khan
- Sanki King
- Shumyle Haider
- Hassan Shah Gilani
- S.M. Raza
The Red bull Canvas Cooler was also attended by local celebrities like Ali Hamza (Noori), Bilal Khan, Ali Noor (Noori), Umair Jaswal, Farhad Humayun and Shiraz Upal.
The stars appreciated the efforts of the artists. Some of them were amazed at the talent existing in Pakistan while some of them thought more events like these should frequently take place.
It was quite encouraging to see that Pakistan is embracing new heights in arts. The country lacks events like these where artists can freely show off their work to the world.
Below are just some of the pieces of art featured in the event.
