Artist Spotlight: Sheida Shekarian

A selection of work by Toronto-based artist Sheida Shekarian (who you may recognize as our Tomorrow’s Talent Vol II cover artist). With a passion for expressing the human experience through humor and narrative-based visuals, Shekarian loves any form of creativity that evokes a feeling of nostalgia. Born and raised in Iran, she explains that “the unwavering humour of the Iranian people as a form of coping mechanism during hardships has influenced much of my character and creative work as an illustrator.” She has worked as a campaign photoshoot producer, graphic designer, and illustrator, and though she has a deep admiration for all creative fields, she always finds herself drawn back to the world of illustration.
