Pakistani Artistes Come Together For Flood Victims
Art has a wonderful way of bringing communities together, so its no wonder that when that very community needs the most assistance, artists are there at the forefront, ready to give back. As Pakistan is hit by the worst flooding in its history, with a death toll of over 1000 and millions left homeless, these artists are using their livelihoods to collect aid for flood victims.

1. Isma Gul Hasan

Isma is an artist currently based in Karachi, where she teaches design and illustration at Habib University. Having worked as an animator at Shehri Pakistan and Puffball Studios, where she worked on Pakistan's first animated dystopian short film 'Shehr-e-Tabbassum', Isma makes wonderful artwork that explores themes of resistance and gender. She has put up all her artwork for sale, and all the money will go towards flood relief.
