Rojin Shafiei is an Iranian-Canadian multidisciplinary artist who was born in 1993 in Iran. She uses art as a language to translate cultural messages and bring femininity in her works. She sometimes uses these elements directly in her videos in a documentary style or integrates them as a symbol. Torn between two completely diverse societies, Iran and Canada, she has experienced and discovered many subjects which address femininity. As Rojin feels that there are a lot of inspirations in people’s routines that could be observed and captured, both People and cities are the two things that can inspire her. She observes her world from behind the visor of a camera, and she sees everything as a frame. Her goal is to use routine as an aesthetic and translate it into an art form in any medium it fits.
