Fatima Garzan is an Iranian-born Canadian artist. She immigrated to Canada in 1992. Fatima had a BA in Economics and studied Fine Arts at the University of Waterloo where she received her Honours Bachelor of Arts in 2005. Garzan’s art practice spans across painting, printmaking, and installations. Her experimentation with an array of materials from paper to plastic, lead her work to different and unexpected concepts. Her work evokes cultural traditions and the power of re-using and recycling materials in an increasingly congested world.
Garzan has exhibited in Canada, France, and Iran. In 2017, she was the Artist-in-Residence at Salt Spring Island, British Columbia, Canada, in October 2018 L’AiR Arts residency in Paris, France and Atelier Circulaire in Montréal, Québec, Canada in 2019.
She has work in the Canada Council Art Bank, the City of Kitchener, and recently her work was acquired by CAMH (The Centre for Addiction and Mental Health in Toronto) in the category of Stand-Alone work competition.
