About Me​

Miss Sophiya Umar under HEC scholarship program “Overseas scholarships for MS/MPhil leading to PhD in selected fields (Phase – II) organized the solo painting exhibition in France,
Saint-Etienne.
It’s for the first time that any female artist of Pakistan organized her solo painting exhibition in France. For the University Jean Monnet as well, it was for the first time that a painting exhibition
was organized in the Hall of L’Atrium, which made this event even more special for everyone around. The topic of the exhibition “Vers Le Ciel” towards the sky speaks itself for this exhibition. Paintings related to sky, galaxies and the world beyond imagination were the part of this event.
At the same time the mix cultural effects and the impacts were clearly evident from the work of Miss Sophiya Umar. Paintings which at the same time
represented the local indigenous elements like kites, topic of Basant, Balloons, etc. whereas there was depth and profound abstraction in the background with subtle and sober colors.
The opening speech was delivered by Mr. Serge RIFFARD the Vice President of University. Followed by speeches of Madam Brigitte RENOUF, delegate for international relations and director for
common services of documentation and Mr. Eric Vandecasteele, director and responsible for international relations of department Fine-Arts.
They highly appreciated the efforts and welcomed the future collaboration among the various universities of Pakistan and France. Later on, Miss Sophiya Umar who was wearing a
traditional Pakistani outfit informed audience about the Pakistani art, culture and food. Her work and instruction to Pakistani culture was highly appreciated by the audience and visitors
who came from all over France. She also thanked her PhD supervisor, her family, friends and above all the Higher Education Commission of Pakistan for providing her chance to study in France. In fact, this event gave chance to exchange norms
and values of Pakistani culture at international level and promoted lauder message for the healthy collaboration between Pakistan and France.
