  • Shazia Ahmad: Artist Photo

    Born in Karachi, Pakistan, to a Pakistani father and a Chilean mother, Shazia Ahmad’s practice and research interests are centred on the notions of home and belonging, tied to the broader theme of otherness due to her interfaith and mixed-race background. Her practice comprises painting, printmaking, and handmade miniature dioramas. A recipient of multiple Canada Council for the Arts Explore and Create grants, Shazia has exhibited her work in Canada, the United States, and Spain. She is currently the 2021-22 Don Wright Scholar at St. Michael’s Printshop in St. John’s, NL, Canada.
