Fahim Rao is a Pakistani sculptor and educator based in Karachi. Rao received a diploma in fine arts from the Central Institute of Arts and Crafts, Karachi in 2005, where he now teaches sculpture and 3D arts as a permanent faculty. Through his studio art practice, he examines how stigma can stop youth and young adults from talking about their everyday struggle with self-doubt, insecurity, humiliation and physical exhaustion. He carves, assembles, and welds to create forms that tell stories of lawlessness, inequality, unaccountability and of injustice. He has presented three solo exhibitions and has participated in many group exhibitions in Pakistan and the USA.
