Born in Lahore, Pakistan, Khalil Chishtee is a visual artist based in New York City. Using shredded, bunched, bungled, and knotted plastic bags, Khalil Chishtee creates evocative figural sculptures imbued with emotional tension. Chishtee mostly works only with the bags themselves, constructing his sculptures by artfully manipulating the plastic as if he were working with clay.
