Jimmy Engineer, the renowned artist and philanthropist, was born in a Parsi family in 1954. He completed his schooling from St. Anthony’s High school, Lahore, and after a brief interlude at the Forman Christian College, he spent the next three years at the National College of Arts (NCA), expanding his creative prowess.
It was in 1976 that he turned into a professional painter but his achievements went much beyond his artist’s creativity when he discovered a deep love for all his fellow beings, specially for the downtrodden. His art pieces soon became expressions of truth and his images began to speak of his compassion for the people he saw.
He was awarded Sitara-e-Imtiaz (Civil Award) for Art from the Government of Pakistan in 2005 and a Human Rights medal by the Human Rights Society of Pakistan in 2000.

An exhibition of his 54 original drawings will be held at Revivers Galleria (84 B1, Ghalib Road, Gulberg 3, Lahore) on the 12 of February 2011.
