I am a business psychologist and a visual artist and I use art as a tool to facilitate both group and individual self-exploration to improve, engagement, performance and decision making at work.
The notion of the authentic self, exploring stories of the world within us and what drives behaviour pervades my work. As a business psychologist, I have mostly exhibited within corporate spaces, always creating a strong interactive element to my photographic installations, they are engagement pieces that facilitate self reflection, reveal fresh perspectives and start new conversations.
I am now translating my aesthetic to a wider context, aiming to exhibit in public spaces and galleries.
Shahid attended St Martins School of Art and Parsons School of design in New York, studying Fashion, Photography and Illustration and also holds an MSc in Business Psychology.
