The spiral in a snail's shell is the same mathematically as the spiral in the Milky Way galaxy, and it's also the same mathematically as the spirals in our DNA. It's the same ratio that you'll find in very basic music that transcends cultures all over the world.

Joseph Gordon-Levitt

Today, in the twenty-first century, the question remains of how to reimagine the relationship between the arts and society.

It has been established beyond any doubt that DNA is the building block of every living thing in this world. Some scientists describe it as the “language of God”. With this unique language He designs, manages and controls every living thing. Since DNA determines our characteristics and traits, it should also have a significant role in our destiny.Each person is so unique that no other individual can have the same DNA make up or DNA language. One person’s structure of eye, finger prints, face or body features are so individualized that no one ever in the history of the universe have had the same features and would not have the same features in the future generations to come. Isn’t that amazing?  The DNA also determines individual’s behaviors, the way he or she thinks, the way that person reacts, struggles in his or her life.

Creativity and artistic interest can almost certainly be inherited, according to new research from scientist at the University of Helsinki; the extent to which creativity is determined by our DNA may be greater than ever imagined.

We have seen in Pakistan’s three major Cities art for many decades but interestingly a new cityGujrat has emerged in art education and studio practice. Selected artist Wajid Dharkiwalla is one of the professor , and Salman Arshad and Usman Hussain  his former students are  living and practicing art in Gujrat, Pakistan.I believe our life experiences and our DNA create interesting expression, like in this exhibition that show  Interesting art pieces created through continuous repetition of any smaller shape and  this process is meditative.
