Shaheer Zazai’s practice focuses on exploring the development of cultural identity in the present geopolitical climate and diaspora. His digital works revolve around imagery drawn from traditional Afghan carpets that are rendered in Microsoft Word. Through mimicking carpet-making methods, Zazai creates his own designs in which every knot of carpet is translated into a typed character. While the digital is a process based in exploration, Zazai’s paintings are an internal investigation into vulnerability and fear.
