With the recent booming revival of Pakistani cinema, we all have been wanting to see some jack-ass action thrillers, science fiction, and fantasies to rock our big screens. But, unfortunately, we are devoid of them as of yet. No, don’t get your hopes high! We also want to see Godzilla on the streets of Karachi, but for that we will have to wait. As of now, this Pakistani artist has shown Pakistan in sci-fi setting through his art and we are literally indebted to him.
Omar Gilani – an illustrator, designer, and concept artist from Lahore has a series of illustrations called ‘Pakistan+’. These illustrations show Pakistan in completely different setting; mixing high-end science fiction with our own desi Pakistan.
Have a look at what avante-garde Pakistan this ‘Pakistan+’ series has to offer:
