Aiesha Baig

Biography

Aiesha Baig is a Toronto based emerging artist currently completing her BFA at OCAD University. She works with various media including oils, watercolour, and gouache while finding her inspiration in nature and botanicals. Capturing the beauty in nature is how she expresses her connection to God and verifies His unquestionable existence.

Statement 

The greatest proof of God’s existence is seen through the beauty of nature. Spirituality and kinship one feels to the Creator are contemplated through the moment act of performance between the experience of space and painted articulation. Painting ‘plein air’ creates a spontaneous image focusing on light, mood, and atmosphere – where my paintings become part of the landscape.
