Commission an Artwork

Preserve the moment. Transform the space.

Hello! I'm Shehzar Abro.

I specialize in image-making and storytelling.

I am a Pakistani artist based in Canada, between Vancouver and Toronto. With a multidisciplinary career as a visual artist spanning over 9 years, I have been working in various traditional and digital media such as murals, paintings, drawings, and animation. 

I have led and contributed to renowned projects globally in Canada, Australia, and Pakistan. Recently, I was a finalist in the Mississauga Arts Council MARTYS Awards 2024 and have also been awarded a mural commission by the High Commission of Pakistan in Australia. I formally studied the arts for 6 years, with two professional diplomas in animation and a bachelors degree in media arts. 

I love helping people record timeless moments with paintings, creating meaningful art that leaves a lasting impact. 

"Through my paintings, I explore the intersections of cultural identity, tradition, and modernity. Each piece is imbued with personal anecdotes and universal truths, offering a dialogue between past and present."

- Shehzar Abro, Artist

Selected paintings


Mohatta Palace

The client requested a striking black and white image of Mohatta Palace Museum in Karachi, known for its historical significance and once home to Fatima Jinnah. I delivered a painting that captured the building's architectural majesty and historical resonance through bold contrasts and architectural detail.


Fontana Di Trevi

One of my favourite buildings in the world! I painted this right after a trip to Rome, feeling inspired by European art and architecture


Abdul Sattar Edhi

I painted this artwork at the Pakistan Festival in Vancouver live, and it was later generously donated by the organisers to the Consulate General of Pakistan in Vancouver. It now lives their in one of its offices in Downtown, and it could not have found a better home!


Kobe Bryant

A very dear client of mine loved Kobe and is a huge basketball fan! So this painting meant the world to him.


Red Abstract

Red Abstract was an experiment in breaking free from the instinctual need for order and structure. I used unconventional materials like soap bars, string, leaves, wire, old dried brushes, and newspaper to apply paint. Immersed in the process, I focused on making the colors work compositionally. The result is this striking red acrylic piece on paper. I'm excited to create more works like this, potentially even a series!

 "His work is a not just any piece of art, it's not just beautiful and inspirational but there is a bold and confident aura in his work, as if every splash of paint is proud of where it belongs. 

Every painting speaks for itself and that's the most enigmatically beautiful quality in his work."
Maryam Sami Khan

""My approach to painting involves an interplay of form and movement, using light and shadow to create a sense of depth and drama. It is a cinematic exploration where composition and character shape the narrative."" 

""Embracing a transmedia form of storytelling, my paintings interact with other mediums like drawing and animation. This fusion allows me to communicate complex themes and emotions, creating a rich, multidimensional experience for the viewer."  
- Shehzar Abro
