Salman Toor - Artists - Aicon Art 2024


Born 1983 in Lahore, Pakistan.
Lives and works in Brooklyn, New York.

Toor's works range from meticulously executed nineteenth-century-style history painting to loosely painted and abstracted figuration employing design elements and visual language from Eastern and Western pop culture. As observed by Whitney curators Christopher Lew and Ambika Trasi, "Toor's paintings consider vulnerability within contemporary public and private life and the notion of community in the context of queer, diasporic identity."
