“Salvador Dali” 2017 Acrylic on Canvas
Shahed’s creative journey started at an early age, “As a child I loved nothing more than to draw on boards and scribble in notebooks and fill out coloring books.” she recalls, “I was always drawn to colors and forms. For a long time I did not understand how exactly one is supposed to ‘make art’... I just created whatever I felt like, using a variety of materials.”
“Portrait of Tupac" 2016 Acrylic on Canvas
As time went on, she began to develop her artistic ability. “I realized that I must progress and practice on my own, so I taught myself how to properly create artworks without the help of a teacher or art tutor.” Dedicated to refining her skill, Shahed, "learned by (her) own experimentation and trial.”
“Personification of the Sun and the Moon” 2018 Acrylic on Canvas
“Art is a liberation from reality for me. It’s not just a way of self-expression, it’s in everything I do in my life. I see art in everything.” It's clear from her creations art is a way of life for this young painter.
