Islamabad [Pakistan], Jan.1 (ANI): A 15-year-old Pakistani artist, Sibtain Junejo, who hails from Karachi, has been honoured at the United States Art Festival.

Junejo participated in the John F Kennedy Center for Performing Arts' VSA International Art Program for Children with Disabilities, and had his artwork selected for a live exhibition in Washington D C, reports the Express Tribune.

"It's heartening to see Pakistanis making waves in so many different fields," the U S Consulate General Karachi said in a post, adding that Junejo's "artwork will remain on display until the end of December at the U S Department of Education (ED) along with that of other peers from Egypt, the United Kingdom, South Korea, Saudi Arabia, Singapore, and elsewhere in the U S."
