Ambreen Butt Biography

Ambreen Butt (b. Lahore, Pakistan) is a Pakistani-American artist who lives and works in Dallas, TX. She was trained in traditional Persian miniature painting, which continues to deeply inform her labor-intensive work even as the scale of her pieces has continued to grow, and now includes large-scale installations. Her work explores themes of feminism, political conflict, extremism, and the tension and interdependence of seemingly opposing forces like innocence and guilt, terror and seduction. Her work has been exhibited widely and is in the permanent collections of the Baltimore Museum of Art, Brooklyn Museum, Cleveland Museum of Art, Institute of Contemporary Art Boston, Library of Congress, Minneapolis Institute of Art, Museum of Fine Arts Boston, National Museum for Women in the Arts, Worcester Art Museum, Hood Museum, and DeCordova Sculpture Park. She received her training in Indian and Persian Miniature Painting from the National College of Arts in Lahore and received her MFA from MassArt.
