Hi! My name is Kseniya, but I go by K.
I am a visual artist of mixed heritage born and raised in Uzbekistan. For almost a decade I have been working on a variety of international projects with World Culture Open - a global network of cultural creatives, based between Beijing and Seoul. I moved to Canada in 2018 and I am currently based out of Toronto, but available worldwide ;)
Today, I am a freelance hustler doing a bunch of things. Perhaps, I'm best known for my whimsical community murals, but I also facilitate workshops, design and lead team building activities, manage creative projects, and yes, sometimes I do my own art too! My work is always about community, spaces we inhabit, and the ways we connect with each other. Ultimately, I hope that whatever I do makes someone's day a bit brighter and, most importantly, brings us together.
When not busy with the above or chasing my little son, I love doodling my thoughts and stories to life under the moniker al.fergani, and am currently working on an illustrated book that shares the undiscovered wonders of Uzbekistan - my first home.
If you’d like to collaborate, I’d love to chat! Feel free to drop me a line at email@example.com!
