Dr Shahida Manzoor has started participating in exhibitions recently after a long period of almost eight years as she was out of the country for her doctoral degree in Art History, since she is very busy in carrying out research program as the coordinator at Research Center, College of Art & Design University of the Punjab Lahore, it is getting harder for her to paint prolifically, but even then, her passion for painting, her beloved topic; the cityscape of Lahore is still getting powerful expression through vivid and massive rendering of architectural backgrounds and elongated perspectives of narrow streets of the "Old City" with rickshaws and tongas moving across the dripping red canvasses.
