“My story starts from sadness and darkness and ends with happiness…today I feel free as a bird. I want everyone who sees my visual storytelling to see my hope…” Shalla Javid
Courage, daring and empowerment provide the framework for Shalla Javid’s solo show “We All Have a Wonder Woman Inside Us”. Shalla is a narrative painter whose stories are rooted in her Persian culture, mysticism and feminism. She incorporates animals with human subjects, in a fairy-tale like atmosphere to induce a sense of nurturing grace. Relying on strong memories and the process of meditative visualization, she focuses on issues of cultural mores and gender politics. Combining images of magical empowerment and transformation with expressive brushwork, her layered images entice viewers into her world. Shalla’s work is filled with a sense of courage and daring, hope, pain, longing and ultimately triumph.
Shalla Javid is a professional artist accustomed to living life without borders. This has helped her move beyond the self-imposed confines of medium and subject into an exploratory realm of endless possibilities. Shalla is Persian born, but the inspiration to become an artist came during a family trip to Paris when she was eight years old. After years of painting, she has learned to evoke emotion from her work. She creates art, with a lot of surface quality and vibrant colors. Shalla’s work is filled with motion and excitement. The intimate experience of making art allows Shalla to express her ideas, thoughts and feelings. Satisfaction comes in knowing when a piece is finished. Joy comes in that special moment when someone connects with a painting and wants it to become part of his or her life. https://www.shallajavidart.com/
