Masood Kohari is amongst the senior-most living legends of Pakistan. He enjoys international repute as an artist per excellence. His diverse oeuvre - sketches, paintings, sculptures and paintings on glass is a remarkable contribution to the realm of plastic arts.
Masood is a perfectionist to the core who has the ability to fashion any material he chooses to work in, into a masterpiece. He lives between France and Pakistan and has a following on both continents. He has played an instrumental role in bridging the divide between East and West by promoting a softer image of Pakistan, internationally. He is an "Ustad" in the true Eastern tradition wh shares and guides, inspires, and informs students and scholars alike.
