tahsin davdani (b.198X) is a first generation Canadian multidisciplinary artist. Her name is arabic and means to enrich, or beautify, so it is fitting she has always been drawn to the arts, finding solace and expression in creating beautiful things. Her work is an extension of her innermost thoughts and emotions with the desire and intent to connect dots and plant seeds. Conversations, revelations and inspirations realized and desired, inform her process. It's a push x pull towards critical thought — with comments on humanity, society, culture, identity, place, and our collective states of being. Her formal training in design and communications lends to her aesthetic incorporating digital x analogue collage and use of found lens-based imagery, typography, illustration, abstraction, repetition, wordplay x prose to express the resultant feelings of those thoughts in all their complexities. Though the work is a form of self-described self-portraiture, she intends for the viewer to see themselves as well as our shared humanity, experiences, and purpose in the visuals she creates. She is mother to two bright stars/precious seeds and lives and works in Toronto.
