Salwa Baquer

About


Hello! I am Salwa, an Environmental Design student specializing in Interior Design at OCAD U in Toronto. 


As an artist & designer, I love to portray stories in my work and scaffold into them a sense of self, so I am never soaring away, always swooping in. I am captivated by the genius functionality of minimalism and the allure of earthy, warm colour palettes.

In my philosophy, design should never concede to the mundane, rather aspire to accentuate utility and purpose in aesthetic as it competes with the intricacy of refinement within.

I harbour a deep love for existentialist literature, am drawn to the mysterious sea and seldom deny myself the joy of a good chocolate cake.

Born in Dhaka, Bangladesh, I am currently living and working from Toronto, Canada.
