GWADAR:

Chief Minister Jam Kamal has showered praise on artists hailing from Balochistan’s Pasni city for sketching a picture of Dubai ruler Sheikh Mohammed bin Rashid Al Maktoum at the beach on the occasion of Expo 2021 supposed to be held in Dubai later this year in October.

“Pasni artists from Balochistan display a unique way of art with perfection and balance,” said CM Kamal in a tweet early Thursday morning.

The giant beach sketch has been declared as the biggest beach sketch ever made in Pakistan.

According sources familiar with the matter, artists Zubair Mukhtar, Bihar Ali Gohar and Hussain Zeb, sketched the picture for the promotion of Expo 2020. The sand art measures 75×62 feet and covers 3,534 square feet of area on the shore of Pasni.

It is pertinent to note that the aforementioned artists have earlier paid homage to various other personalities by sketching their pictures. These sketches include Baloch singers Noor Khan Bizenjo, Nako Faizak and Atashad.
