Murad Khan Mumtaz is a Pakistani artist trained in the traditional art of Indian miniature painting. As small acts of remembrance, his paintings meditate on traces of traditional culture that are disappearing in the materialistic landscape of contemporary life.

Born in Lahore, Mumtaz was educated at Pakistan’s National College of Arts and Columbia University in New York City, which he attended on a Fulbright fellowship. He is a co-founder of the Hast-o-Neest Center for Traditional Art and Culture in Lahore and has published numerous articles on the history of miniature painting. He is currently working toward a PhD in South Asian art history at the University of Virginia.
