Now, she’s found herself at the center of a professional controversy
Muniba is now being accused of plagiarizing the work of another artist’s work. Laiba Baig, who is also an artist herself, took to Facebook to accuse Muniba Mazari of copying her work.
She called Muniba a “liar and fraud” for copying her work. She says that she reached out to Muniba to talk it out but the artist said that since she was using a different medium for her work, it does not constitute plagiarism.
Laiba then posted the similarities between their art work.
This picture is from Laiba’s exhibition in 2012. Modernism featuring traditionalism was the theme of the work.
These photos were presented as comparison for Laiba’s claims over Muniba plagiarizing her work
The above work is by Laiba and the one beneath is by Muniba.
Eventually, Laiba says she decided to stop using the theme in her work.
According to Laiba, the reason why she did not take any legal action against her was because she had heard of Muniba’s struggles
She says she had heard about her traumatic accident and knew that she was starting a new life. She did not want to create hurdles for her.
Muniba has not issued any statement in this regard, as of yet.
This is a developing story.
