Event Details

Come and meet Omar Gilani Art & Illustration, a digital artist from Pakistan. Omar’s imagination takes his country into a fantasy future. Lose yourself in his future world at the Culture Arcade in the Prince Claus Fund Gallery. Omar is a digital artist, illustrator, and designer from Peshawar, Pakistan. He was trained as an engineer, with an MSc in Mechanical Design and an MPhil in Robotics. He wanted a career more in line with his interests and started working as a visual designer and consultant. That took him into corporate design, mobile games and apps, animated TV series and product marketing campaigns. Gilani’s work was supported by the Prince Claus Fund in 2017. Read more about Omar here:

On Friday 21 September you can hear Omar’s story – how he became a digital artist, how he explores Pakistan in an alternative reality and – to his great delight – how he makes trucks fly! Doors will open at 17:15, the event will start at 17:30.
