I am Kseniya aka al.fergani - I am a mural artist, originally from Uzbekistan. As a person of mixed heritage my personal murals are a visual exploration of complex cultural identities and are inspired by folk motifs from diverse cultures along the Silk Road that influenced me growing up. I love pubic art where I get to work on multidimensional surfaces and organic shapes, marrying aesthetics with functionality.
I am also a community engaged artist and love creating murals with schools and communities! In this work I focus on fostering empathy and connection beyond our visible differences. Together with participants we explore creative ways to celebrate our diversity and bring us so unique and different together. Joy, vibrant colours and uplifting messages are medium of my community art as I hope to bring about positive societal change one brush stroke at a time.
Lastly, I can help you with a project management side of your mural project. I am passionate about intergenerational community-engaged projects and can help a creative project with:
- Concept and ideation
- Community engagement strategy
- Public consultation facilitation
- Partnership and collaborations management
- Project management
- Marketing and communications
