Australian artist and sculptor, Shazia Imran is best known for her expressive mixed media pieces. She has won many national and international awards including Lorenzo il Magnifico Award at the Florence Biennale 2015, Applied Arts Award at the London Biennale 2017, ‘Most Collectible Artist’ Award at Shenzhen City Art Fair, First prize at the 2018 Chianciano Biennale and multiple awards in Australia.
Her work has been exhibited internationally and hangs in public and private collections in Australia, USA, UK, Hong Kong, Thailand, China and Singapore.
Shazia draws her inspiration from her travels, exploring the infinite expressiveness of her subjects through mixed media. Her delicately multi-layered paintings explore the connections between landscape, memory and the subconscious through texture and
the interplay of light and dark creating an atmosphere that opens itself up to multiple meanings.
Use of colour, shape, texture and light defines her style in capturing the personality and emotions of the subject.
Her recent body of work is based on the mandala – representing the wholeness and unity of mankind. Representing the universe itself, the mandala is both microcosm and macrocosm and we all are part of it.
