About Sameera Raja

Canvas Art Gallery

Sameera Raja was trained as an architect from the National College of Arts, Lahore in 1991. After some years of architectural practice, she founded Canvas Gallery in Karachi, the premier Art Gallery of Pakistan dealing in modern , miniature and contemporary art.

In a span of 18 years, Sameera Raja has expanded her space, influence and areas of interest / business, hence Canvas Gallery has become the leading private gallery, representing important artists of the country.

She has also worked in collaboration with prestigious galleries in USA, UK , Europe , Singapore and Middle East in order to promote contemporary art of Pakistan, and is working on a series of books / monographs on the art and artists of Pakistan. Being cognisant of the lack of art in public spaces, highly acclaimed Sculpture Residency Programmes with key corporate partners have been initiated to bring art into the public realm.

Sameera Raja is currently the Chairperson of the Executive Committee and a Member of the Board of Governors of the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture, Karachi.

In her personal capacity, Sameera has been invited to speak on Art / Entrepreneurship/ Leadership/ Women's Empowerment and various other topics both locally and internationally
