Street Artist Joshila Dhaby grew up absorbing and appreciating the tropical landscape around her. She draws, paints, makes stencils and she enjoys painting in the streets. Her pieces evoke a passion for ecology and her work aims to be a conversation starter.
here is a notion of sustainability awareness in her work. Her focus on creating pieces that seek to inform about uncomfortable topics such as human caused threat to the environment and wildlife is based on the desire to draw attention to our actions and responsibility as Ocean State Citizens. Intellectual inquiry plays an important role in her work. However, the emotional and visual impact is still an important part.
Joshila’s work consists of different layers, whether of stencils, meanings or details, that subtly contains messages for the viewer to interpret. The most important parts of the work are the feelings within, the connecting bridges and the story behind. Her primary medium for art is stencil graffiti or street art.
Some of the places where Joshila’s work has been created, painted, and/or displayed include Copenhagen, Bristol, Miami, Dubai, Mauritius, Johannesburg and Ringsted.
