Rahila Zeeshan is a Textile Artist from Pakistan. Travelling across three countries after leaving Pakistan, Rahila and her family came to Melbourne in 2018, where she has been inspired by its Arts culture and activities which embraces everyone from different walks of life.
“Melbourne embraces everyone! This beautiful city has urged me to revive my long lost passion of visual Arts. I like to create artwork with bold colours on any theme that inspires me”.
Rahila usually uses Acrylic, ink and watercolour, but enjoys many innovative and experimental art forms. Landscapes, still life and abstract painting are her most favourable genre. Being lived in metropolitan city all her life, the bustling vibes of busy city has always inspired her. “Working with Sandra and her egg tempura method, has enabled me to learn new styles and techniques. It has definitely proven to be a source of rich learning. I admire the graffiti art found in Melbourne’s Laneways, so during Covid, I created a mini series called “A Colourful Walk”. I have participated in Linden Postcard Show 2020 and the mini-Archibald style Heads High exhibition in November at Space2B.
Rahila is now currently coordinating the Space2b’s program Space2Fly, which is a mentoring program for CALD women to guide about their business ideas and support in arranging their business plans which may result in financial independency for participants of Space2Fly program.
Through this and by being part of this exhibition, I am progressing day by day in my skills and knowledge.
Face2face is my first independent art exhibition in Australia and I am very excited to be a part of it.
Proudly supporting local artists and our art community
