ISLAMABAD: A solo exhibition titled, “Beauty Alt Atrocity” is in full swing amid attracting large number of people at Pakistan National Council of Arts (PNCA) which was started on November 22 and will continue till November 30.

A graduate of the prestigious National College of Art, her work has been exhibited in six countries spanning three continents. The displayed artworks have been privately built up and are so complex, diverse, and somehow both entirely contemporary and yet faithfully traditional, that it boggles the mind.
The exhibition was organized by Pakistan National Council of the Arts (PNCA), Visual Arts Division, featuring more than 25 artworks, including abstract art as well as calligraphy. In her displays, Ayisha has highlighted the bitter experiences of her life in captivating colors, which seem to be very beautiful, but in each piece of art, there was a full-blown story.
