Aqsa Khan-Nasar

Aqsa Khan Nasar was born in 1995, in Pakistan, currently practicing between Birmingham, UK and Pakistan. She did BFA from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Pakistan with a distinction in thesis. She completed her MA in Art & Design: Interdisciplinary Practices at the Birmingham School of Art in 2022. Nasar has exhibited her works nationally, and internationally and worked on a collaborative project between BCU and Symbiosis International University, India for the Commonwealth Games, 2022.

Travelling has immensely informed her body of work where she explores historical, geographical and cultural similarities and differences respective to a land which is often ‘divided by borders but united by cultures and practices’. Her MA thesis was a multisensorial project (smell, sounds and visuals) based on Sub-continental history and colonisation. Nasar’s recent works exhibit elements of olfactive art. In February 2023, she exhibited her work at Millepiani Rome, Italy.
