Komail Aijazuddin (b. 1984) is a visual artist and writer. He holds BA degrees in Art & Art History from New York University, NY (2006) and an MFA from the Pratt Institute, NY (2010).

His practice began as an investigation into figurative Islamic art and has since expanded to include a larger vocabulary of religious art - illuminations, altar pieces, paintings, scrolls, votive objects - as access points to queer contemporary identity. He is interested in the intersection and creations of notions of divinity, belief, blasphemy, statehood and the sacred.

He lives and works in New York City and Lahore.
