We love this project titled “Moondust” – artist Sara Golish’s ode to Afrofuturism and natural hair and cannot believe we have not discovered her work before. An emerging visual artist born in Windsor, Ontario, Canada, from an early age Sara knew she wanted to become and artist.
After excelling in the Windsor Center for the Creative Arts during high school and obtaining her BFA in 2008 for Drawing & Painting, acquiring the Eric Freifeld Award for ‘Proficiency in Draughtsmanship’ from Ontario College of Art & Design, in 2011, in order to expand upon her visual language, she completed courses at George Brown College in graphic and web design and development.
Sara has also completed extensive work as a decorative painter on high-end residential, corporate and retail interior design projects for places in Toronto, New York, Los Angeles, Sarasota and Barbados. She has also sub-contracted work for those such as Brian Gluckstein, Chapman Design Group, Yabu Pushelberg, Douglas Design, Munge Leung, Andrew Ness, and Jay Hodgins, to name a few.
Currently working in Toronto, Ontario, Sara specialises in figurative and portrait drawing and painting.
