Ahmed Parvez (1926–1979) was born in Rawalpindi, Pakistan. He was one of the most remarkable artists produced by Pakistan and he received widespread acclaim in Pakistan and abroad. From his first solo exhibition in 1952 to his last in 1979, he passed through many phases as a painter, but his work remained marked with energy. Before 1972, he spent about 12 years in Britain and exhibited successfully all over Europe; and also two years in USA, where his exhibition in Galerie Internationale, New York, was very well received. He received the President’s Medal for Pride of Performance in 1978.
On 14 August 2006, Pakistan Post issued a Rs. 40 sheetlet to posthumously honour 10 Pakistani Painters. Besides Ahmed Pervez, the other 9 painters are: Laila Shahzada, Askari Mian Irani, Sadequain, Ali Imam, Shakir Ali, Anna Molka Ahmed, Zahoor ul Akhlaq, Zubeida Agha and Bashir Mirza.
