ABOUT THE ARTIST: MARYAM SAFARZADEH

We're so excited to be working with Maryam Safarzadeh, our featured artist for Saturdays in the Studio for October! Maryam is an Iranian poet and painter who moved to Canada in 2019. She started painting at the young age of 10 and learned many different techniques from various masters of painting in Iran. After graduating from university with a degree in graphic design, she started studying with the renowned Iranian artist Taha Behbehani. These classes opened doors to many new dimensions in her art. Maryam has had many successful solo and group exhibitions since.

Maryam has been teaching art and creation for more than 16 years in various art schools. Currently she is creating art and running art classes Shō Art Studios, which focuses on the interplay of “Art, Spirit & Performance.” Maryam also serves on the board of directors for the Art Gallery of Windsor. In addition to her work as a painter, Maryam is an accomplished poet. Many Iranian composers have created songs with her poems.
