Anila Quayyum Agha

Anila Agha creates her works using processes that are associated with textile arts, like screen printing, wax, organic resists and embroidery. The embroidery is used as a drawing medium, connecting and bridging the gaps of the many layers that result from her explorations of concept and process. Anila’s current works are a series of drawings incorporating a combination of translucent and opaque effects on paper, through the use of the formal elements of form, color, and patterning. Anila was born and raised in Pakistan. She has a BFA from the National College of Arts, Lahore and an MFA from the University of North Texas in Denton, Texas.
