Shima Shanti, inspired by Spirit and nature, paints with beeswax and fire. She juxtaposes bold texture that is rough yet refined with a sublime neutral tone and hue that appear to span spiritual dimensions. Her use of native and vintage elements in contemporary design blur the boundaries of culture and dissolve records of time. What is left to the beholder is the feeling of being in this world but not of it, the feeling of unifying oneness of Peace. Shima’s work appears ethereal nonetheless firmly grounded. This along with her unyielding acceptance of the imperfect is reflected in her work.
