Pakistan – Italian artist paints mural for Karachi airport

Italian artist Maurizio Boscheri has painted a mural at the Jinnah International Airport. Italy’s diplomatic mission in Pakistan pointed out that all passengers leaving the airport will be able to see the mural and be reminded of the deep bonds of friendship between the two countries. Pakistan’s national animal, the markhor, stands out at the centre of the mural. Mr Boscheri, a staunch wildlife supporter, had previously accepted the proposal of Italy’s Consul General in Karachi, Gianluca Rubagotti, to hold an exhibition in the city last August. Entitled “Wildly Ours: Past, Present and Future of Pakistan’s Wildlife” and curated by Mario Liberali, the exhibition featured 22 oil paintings on canvas vividly portraying snow leopards, tigers, wolves, and foxes.
