Jaspal Birdi is a young Canadian South Asian Artist born and raised in the multicultural city of Toronto. Inspired through the colourful communities and environments she has lived in, her works reflect challenges between ideas of the traditional and unconventional in daily living.
Using oil paint as her main medium of expression, Jaspal Birdi reproduces dialogues based on intuition and irregular similarities in realism and abstraction.
Therefore, questioning the physicality of our realities and the value of time as it shapes our understanding of the space we live.
Graduated from OCAD University’s 2010 Fine Arts: Drawing & Painting Program, Jaspal Birdi has received many awards in recognition for her talents, most recently participating as a finalist in the 7th Annual Arte Laguna Prize for Painting. Her works have been featured in publications such as Zoomers Magazine Canada, Corriere Della Sera Firenze, and online IO Donna.

Dioptric Paradox
Dioptric Paradox is a narrative series in which I play with digital panoramic photographs captured from reality then reproduced and restored with painted interruptions simulating cognitive realities. Using oil paint’s loose, chromatic, and photo realistic qualities versus the rigid, realistic, and thinly collaged digital photos, I create a contrasting dialogue questioning what is real in our vulnerable world dictated by various abstract notions.
