Blackboard entry by Sophia Ahamed
Sophia Ahamed is a Graphic Artist living in Vancouver BC Canada. She has worked internationally on a wide rage of projects and has had her work featured in various publications. Her illustrative work is a balance between hand drawn, digital renditions which creates beautiful contrasts of colour and depth through out each piece.
Her current illustration series is titled "Of Flesh & Bone" & "The Great Depression" simply states that that no matter who we are or what we are, we as human beings are built the same. We have all gone through moments of happiness, of loss, of despair and of triumph. It is said that what we truly desire in life in happiness. But only through pain can we begin to understand what happiness really is and allow our selves to feel it without hesitation.
Science has given us the ability to understand our own minds and bodies. Art has given us the ability to communicate these findings with others. The goal is to create a different kind of healing process, one that stems from the artist and to the viewer.
