Maryam Inam is an innovative and figurative Pakistani artist currently living in Hyderabad. She received her bachelor's degree in Fine Arts from SABS University Jamshoro (CEAD, MUET) in 2021. She chose painting as her major subject because it matches her temperament. She grew up drawing with pencils to make use of her spare time. She discovered that making art has been a path to show her emotions and feelings of grief and larger-than-life questions that roam around her head and her heart. She has used gestures of hands in her work to show her inner emotions. For her, painting hands and facial gestures help her convey her thoughts.
Gestures of hands have been a way to portray my bottled-up feelings on a blank canvas. The body of my work is solely centered on the quiet space in your head where snippets of life events and memories live. My work is simply a voice for everyone around to help them make sense of different emotions through the language of hands.
