LAHORE: The Punjab University College of Art & Design (CAD) on Wednesday held a seminar and exhibition titled “6 Decades of Excellence by Distinguished Alumnus Dr. Shaukat Mahmood” to commemorate Dr. Mahmood’s journey of excellence.
University of Home Economics Vice Chancellor Prof. Dr. Kanwal Ameen, DAC Senior Prof. Prof. Sumera Jawad, Faculty Members, M Phil Fellows and a large number of students attended the competition.
The work exhibited is based on selective caricatures of Dr. Mahmood and the portrayal of his impression of various people, society and prevailing circumstances. The cartoons on display were divided into three genres: cartoons of popular figures, Awam Ki Halat-E-Zaar and pen politics.
The caricatures are hand drawn while the rest of the caricatures are digital prints based on his recent work. The seminar was divided into six segments highlighting distinct facets of Dr. Mahmood’s quest over the decades. These segments included his youth, his contribution as a cartoonist, pedagogue, documentarian, book author, and author of research and news articles. The exhibition and the seminar were part of the research project of the fellow M Phil. At the end, Dr. Saif Ur Rehman Dar distributed souvenirs to Dr. Shaukat Mahmood and others.
