Thieves steal an artist’s research

KARACHI, Feb 13: The theft of cell phones, vehicles and money has become a routine affair in the city, but this is the first time an artist has been deprived of her models and some paintings, besides old identity cards and research papers.

An artist in residence of the Textile Institute of Pakistan (TIP) has registered a case with with the Bin Qasim police station about the theft.

Artist and art teacher Sumaya Durrani said she was invitedsumaiya-crop.jpg by the TIP to conduct research and teach art to students. She was given a townhouse by the TIP to conduct her research. She was engaged in both tasks for over a year.

She prepared the synopsis for her PhD, which she was in the process of submitting to the University of Karachi for registration as a doctorate fellow.

“Our family was out on January 13 when someone stole my artwork, paintings, research about art education, graphs, especially the models of jewellery, which serve as prototypes made of base metal, to see how the jewellery will actually look,” she told Dawn.—Staff Reporter
