I am a Toronto based artist, born and raised in Dubai and have been calling Canada my home for the past 20 years. From living in two very different countries, to growing up in a very diverse downtown Toronto, it has allowed me to appreciate the beauty of various art forms and artistic perspectives.

Art and music have been passions of mine since childhood and I continue to incorporate them into my art aesthetic.

ARTIST’S STATEMENT

My work in formal terms is modern contemporary abstract. However, I describe my work as art that focuses on empowerment and positivity. I utilize acrylic and mixed media to integrate two main elements into my pieces, vibrancy and texture. The texture for me is my way of showcasing that life is never a flat smooth surface, and that beauty comes from the imperfections.

My paintings are heavily influenced and inspired by various forms of creativity. I am also a huge mental health advocate because of my personal and pivotal experiences and utilize my art platform to build a forum for mental health awareness and to encourage open supportive dialog.

"Seeking validation will keep you trapped. You don't need anyone or anything to approve of your worth. When you understand this you'll be free"- Unknown
This painting is inspired by this quote and it really resonated with me. Often times human nature is to seek other peoples approval, the need for validation. But it's true once you make that conscious effort to accept the fact you don't need the constant reassurance it truly is a freeing experience. Art for me is exactly that, it is that freeing experience where I create without barriers and express my true self on canvas.

This painting was inspired by the song "Redbone" by the talented musician Donald McKinley Glover Jr. aka Childish Gambino. For me he is an artist who pushes boundaries and showcases controversial topics which alot of people shy away from and which needs to put at the forefront. Creating Power House was to showcase that even through dark elements around us, we can always find a way to let colours emerge and positively stand out.
