Tribune Take: Artists, the soul of a nation

Published: February 4, 2012

In today’s episode of the Tribune Take we look at T-Magazine’s cover story, “Spray it dont say it ”, which takes a look at street art in Pakistan.

Zarrar Khuhro, editor T-Magazine, takes us through the story of a young artist who has decided to make the street walls of Karachi his canvas.

Khuhro says graffiti is largely an urban concept and historically has been used as a form of protest by artists, such as the Berlin Wall and Israel’s security wall. Khuhro adds that in a country like Pakistan where politics is extremely polarized, it provides for much creative fodder for such artists.

The Tribune Take daily news web show will appear on the home page.

The Take will feature in-depth interviews and analysis with editors and reporters who are covering the major stories, exploring front page events and major ledes. The news analysis covers the way The Express Tribune examines a story, how we cover it and why.

    Well the story which has been covered by Mr. Khuhro is a good read and in fact it is something that needed some light since no one in my knowledge has covered any thing like this being done in the streets of Karachi where young art makers show their knack on the walls…

    P.S: There’s a typo in the last line which states ledes… it should be major leads,,,
