Drawing and Painting

“Safia Qureshi is a freelance animator, comic-artist, and illustrator based in Mississauga, Canada. Currently studying for a Bachelor in Fine Arts from OCAD University, Safia was born in Pakistan but moved to Switzerland at the age of three. They attended school in Switzerland and later in Lebanon, before migrating to Canada in 2016. At the moment Safia is working on an online webcomic that is set to be released around 2022. Along with that they are working on collaborative animatitions, illustrations, and free-lance commission work in the hope to further involvement in the animation industry, and create larger scale animation projects. Safia enjoys creating projects that normalise diversity and differences, and prefers using fantastical elements as metaphors and symbols to further positive narratives in a manner that is easier to digest. Although their focus is on Animation and Graphic Novels, Safia experiments with expanding their skill set into various forms of narrative art.”
