Aquil Virani’s Artist CV

Aquil Virani is a self-taught Canadian (settler) visual artist. His most recent projects blur the line between art and activism; he makes socially-conscious art that often involves simple public participation, using art as a tool for social change. His painted portraits are as much political statements as they are intimate gifts to real, everyday people.
