Shahir Krishna


Shahir Krishna is an interdisciplinary artist currently working in textile and costume design. Their/Her art explores the schism that is created when existing within a diaspora, weaving together moments of historical psychosis with delicately textured ephemera to create new realms of spiritual possibility for the queer soul. Their/Her inspiration wades in opalescent silver swamps, perfumed by gender torment, romantic hallucination, karmic law and the mythical creatures lounging beneath the ruins of utopia. In this life, Shahir is a diasporic/queer/transgender/indian/malawian/canadian entity.
