Pakistani visual tech artist Ayesha Mubarak Ali was named to Forbes’ 30 Under 30 list for Asia this week for her innovation and use of digital art and technology to investigate issues like light pollution, identity politics, and the future of humanity
Each year, Forbes magazine publishes its 30 Under 30 issue to honour the most promising young leaders in business, media, technology, entertainment, and other industries across the Americas, Asia, and Europe. Many other areas are covered, such as the arts, the media, sports, consumer technology, health, and social effect.
Mubarak said in a tweet on Thursday, “Never could I have imagined that the path I embarked upon in ‘fusion-art’ would lead me to the milestone.”
Forbes appreciated her diversity of topics
To investigate topics like “identity politics,” “light pollution,” “space applications,” and “the future of humanity,” Ali was lauded by Forbes for combining traditional artistic practises with modern technology.
According to the international media, she is the first Pakistani artist to work with NASA scientists, and in July 2022, her work was flown to the International Space Station via SpaceX for the Maleth II project.
Ali’s fusion-art practise has been covered in NFT NYC, Forbes Middle East, E27, Hello, and GRAZIA prior to his most recent accomplishment.
“Ali also joined Metaverse Fashion Council Advisory Board in June 2022 and has been exhibiting internationally, including at the Karachi Biennale and the Islington Mill Gallery,” the website boasts.
According to her LinkedIn page, the young artist graduated from the Indus Valley School of Art and Architecture in Karachi in 2018 with a BA in Fine Arts. She also established the London-based e-learning platform MetaVisionaries and serves as its creative director.
