Alyina Zaidi - Planisphere

Alyina Zaidi (b. 1995) is a London-based artist from New Delhi and Srinagar. Her paintings reflect her cross cultural background — she has lived in India, the USA, and is now planted in the UK.

Zaidi describes her works as expansive fictional landscapes and zoomed-in scenes of a world she has created. This world is partly drawn from memories of her homes in Kashmir and Delhi, from dreams, and from pure imagination. The paintings consist of magical creatures that animate the surrounding rocks, trees and dark waters. She took to creating a fantasy world where magic existed to try to uncover certain mysteries through my paintings.

Zaidi received her BA from Mount Holyoke College, Massachusetts in 2017 and MA Fine Art Painting from Royal College of Art, London in 2021.
