LAHORE - Internationally renowned artist Jimmy Engineer’s artworks are on display at the Jordan National Gallery of Fine Arts in Amman and are being visited by a good number of artists, art lovers and people from different walks of life every day.

On display at the solo exhibition titled “Lines that talk” are Jimmy’s 77 original drawings drawn with a black pencil on black canvases and prints of selected 24 paintings. Simplicity of the material used in creation of the artwork amply depicts the spirit, which he has embraced throughout his life.

The exhibition was inaugurated on October 29 under the patronage of HRH Princess Sarvath El Hassan under the auspices of the Royal Society of Fine Arts. It is scheduled to continue till November 25.

The drawings, which Jimmy drew during his stay in Amman , depict scenes of daily life of the poorest of communities in Pakistani villages. They convey a strong emotional message of simplicity—two brothers playing, a mother caring for her child, a group of labourers resting on a mat are some of the scenes, which Jimmy has depicted through his drawings.

Talking about Jimmy’s artworks on display at the exhibition, Board Member of the Royal Society of Fine Arts Reem Badran said Jimmy’s work represented his deep engagement with his society and his commitment to defend and respect humanity. Jimmy has the passion to bring cultures closer and give endlessly to the poor and the needy of the world.
