    Muhammad Zeeshan originally from the province of Sindh, Pakistan, is a graduate of the National College of Arts, Lahore. Trained in the traditional school of miniature painting, Zeeshan, like his contemporaries Talha Rathore and Nusra Latif Qureshi, has replaced the conventional traditional subject matter of miniature painting with his own personal interpretation of socio - politico - religious issues that plague life today.
