Abdul Jabbar Gull


Abdul-Jabbar-Gul

Abdul Jabbar Gull held his first solo exhibition in Karachi in 2002, and tall, smooth forms carved from the wood of the Sheesham tree, heralded the debut of a formidable young sculptor. That year he participated in a three month residency at the workshop in Johannesburg known as the `Bag Factory, and mounted a solo exhibition in Karachi.

In 2003 he was awarded a National Excellence Award from the Pakistan National Council of the Arts. Exhibitions of impressive carved forms, painted interpretations and work in metal followed. In Gullís work he is the sole artist, taking pride in the perfection of each aspect of the creation.

In 2011 he represented Pakistan in a Sculpture Symposium held in Boryeong, South Korea, where sculptors from 10 countries carved massive forms from the black granite stone of the Boryeong Mountains. In 2013 the sculptor participated in a rural working symposium in Spain.

Gull lives in Karachi where he teaches and maintains his workshop and studio.
