Artists

Javid Jah

 

 

 

 

Javid Jah is a street artist and an emerging architect based in Toronto, Canada. Developing a studio with projects migrating between public art murals and contemporary architecture, Javid is focussed on how graffiti pushes the limits of spatial design. His painting is influenced by three-dimensional representation, experimenting with the anamorphic in letter and figure. Inspired by Sufism, Javid has been developing a practice that addresses issues facing secularized Muslim communities through the lens of esoteric Islamic art and design. Recent public inter-disciplinary installations include the Dome of Madinah Masjid on Danforth Ave and Stac’d, a multi-container exhibition during Nuit Blanche 2017 at Trinity Bellwoods Park. In 2018, several of Javid’s current projects will be completed, including a 3-storey residence facing Graffiti Alley on Queen St West and a Remote Medical Container Lab in Jamaica, prototyped in conjunction with the University of Michigan and Storstac Container Modification. Currently, Javid is working at Wonder Inc, a multi-disciplinary design office specializing in sustainable modular architecture solutions, such as off-grid micro homes, social housing and laneway residences.
