Seeing the world through the eyes of artist Shirin Sahba is a delightful way to enjoy colour, detail and the idea of a simpler time and space. This British Columbia-based painter has been inspired by travel, cinema, and the Persian art of miniature. Sahba's landscapes are stylized concentrations of pattern and miniature characters and architectural elements, and often include the notion of journey in the narrative. A wonderful description of her work is "the beauty of people relating to people relating to spaces."
