Contemporary artist Shaan Taseer lives and works in Toronto. He has travelled and lived throughout the world, and seeks to take the viewer on a journey of the places he has visited. He discovers the relationship between society and politics by placing the city at the centre of his work. His art is immensely political though very subtle.
Taseer is an activist for the rights of minorities and religious freedom. He has experienced religious violence up close and personally and seeks to explore themes of violence and beauty through radiant and harmonious works of intelligent colour with subtle yet explosive energy and vibrant emotion. His work is bold, visually striking and brings dynamic new ways to articulate his core belief.
