Muzzumil Ruheel (b. 1985, Pakistan) is a graduate of the School of Visual Arts, Beacon House National University (BNU) 2009. He has been part of the faculty at the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture (Karachi), the School of Visual Arts, Beacon House National University (Lahore) and the Visual Studies Department at the Karachi University.
Ruheel was trained in traditional Urdu, Arabic and Persian calligraphy prior to his art education. Text, therefore, forms a large part of his practice. “For me, words are the bridges through which I communicate and transcribe the visuals of my mind, it’s like storytelling, where a storyteller tells a story and we create visuals in our minds. My practice too is the same”. His works explore an array of mediums, including multi-disciplinary mixedmedia, interactive installation, video-art, performance, painting, digital, graffiti/public-art and sculpture.
Muzzumil has participated in several exhibitions both locally and internationally. Solo exhibitions include, Confessions of the Wait, 1x1 Art Gallery, Dubai (2020); Misunderstandings,Canvas Gallery Karachi, Pakistan (2019); Lost in his own garden, Grosvenor Gallery, London (2016).
