Reviews of Faiza’s work:

Faiza Mahmud works in watercolour and handles it with balanced skill for creating shapes, images and at times depths. It is a difficult medium but she has shown adaptation in producing human figures, animals and combining some of her work in collage form and approach.

Group exhibitions of young and lesser-known artists; often introduce exciting fresh viewpoints and an opportunity to discover artists while they are affordable. Serious collectors should be exploring such opportunities instead of weighing up the chances of a fake/real old master. Here one was intrigued to come across the work of Faiza Mahmud who, using the subject of chickens as a gender directed motif painted a series of innovative watercolours with expertise. The artist, who teaches art at Karachi Grammar School, has a background of art study in Karachi and in the States. Her work included an obvious flair for the use of collage and admirable oil painting skills.
