Shiraz Sadikeen
Arts Tutor

Shiraz initially joined Māpura studios as a volunteer at the beginning of 2017 with an interest in the problems of improvisation, word-image relationships and the pedagogy of painting; all areas given a unique inflection and practical relevance in the context of artists working with disabilities.

He is stoked to be a part of Māpura's vibrant, creative atmosphere and is consistently impressed with the idiosyncratic intelligence and formal inventiveness of the work produced there. 

Shiraz completed a BFA(Hons) at Elam in 2017.  His own art-practice is preoccupied with improvisatory drawing, cartooning, compositional complexity and abstraction.
