Downloadable CV Riaz Mehmood CV
I am a multidisciplinary artist originally from a small village located between Afghanistan and Pakistan. I immigrated to Canada in 2000 as a professional engineer and decided to pursue a career in the arts. I completed my MFA from the University of Windsor in 2012 and diploma in the Integrated Media program at the Ontario College of Art and Design in 2005. I have participated in several international and national artist residencies and workshops, and have earned a number of grants, scholarships, and awards over the years. I have also been involved with a number of artist-run centers and served on the boards of SAVAC (Toronto) and articule (Montréal). I have shown my work nationally and internationally.
