Nauman Abid lives and works in Lahore. He graduated with a distinction from Beaconhouse National University Lahore in Visual Arts. He has been working with Aga Khan Trust for Culture and Asia Art Archive for projects concerning restoration and archiving of culture. His work deals with the conflicted relationship between the actual and the desired. In his practice, he works with notions of desire, mundane influences, and aspirations for a western or pseudo-western life. Based on the problem of self-identification in contemporary times due to the virtual and cyber interventions, his practice revolves around the subjects of loss and incompleteness. His recent project Light upon light included working with virtual reality to understand the human behavior towards space and territory.
