About shazia.ahmad79

Born in Karachi, Pakistan to a Pakistani father and a Chilean mother, my practice and research interests are centred on the notions of home and belonging, tied to the broader theme of otherness due to my interfaith and mixed-race background. My practice comprises handmade miniature dioramas, painting, screen print, digital print, book arts, monotype, and drawing. After a long break, in which I pursued other professional interests and worked full-time, I returned to fine art in 2016. I graduated with my Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Arts (Painting and Drawing major) from Montreal’s Concordia University in 2019 and I was a finalist for the Prix Albert-Dumouchel in 2018. I am the recipient of a 2019 Canada Council for the Arts Explore and Create grant and have shown my work in Canada, the United States of America, and Spain. I have a previous double major undergraduate degree in Art History and History, and I completed my BTEC Foundation Diploma from Central Saint Martins in London, UK in 1999.
