Hina Khan

Visual artist

Hina Khan was born in Pakistan where she completed an MFA with a major in Miniature Painting. She now uses a mixture of traditional miniature techniques as well as large scale installations and videos to portray social and humanitarian issues such as migration, gender discrimination, and the trauma of displacement.  Her work is the constant search for the best way to express ideas through symbolism to talk about the two cultures she feels she has carried with her, the one from where she was born and the one now in Ireland where she is trying to re-root herself. Hina is currently preparing a solo show for LHQ Gallery Cork in 2022. She participated in a number of group shows in Pakistan and then from 2015 when she came to Ireland in Dublin, County Laois, County Mayo, and County Cork. She has been artist in residence with Fire Station Studios in Dublin, Uilleann in Skibereen, and Cow House in County Wexford. Her artwork is in the permanent collection of the Arts Council in Ireland, and she is the recipient of several Awards from the Arts Council and other funding bodies.
