Shazlin Rahman’s beloved grandmother was a strong presence in her life and the artwork she creates is inspired by that strong, resilient woman and her batik sarongs. She says she uses her art to engage audiences in conversations about the resilience of women of colour.
Shazlin not only shares images of her finished work, but also time-lapse videos that allow us to see how the end result came to be. She’s developed a creative process over many years that allows her to use all of her skills and talents to craft the stories she wants to share.
On this episode, host Angela de Burger chats with Shazlin about what inspires her to tell stories through her artwork, from where she draws inspiration, how she combines free form and defined shapes within her artwork and the importance of keeping your mind open to what may be possible when you’re getting creative.
