Aichoucha Haidara

Aichoucha M. Haidara is a visual and material artist currently based in Hamilton ON. She creates paintings and metalwork that often references her cultural background. Haidara is currently attending OCAD University in Toronto studying in the Material Art and Design program. Haidara explores themes of womanhood and race issues in her work and invites the viewer to look deeper into racial relationships. She also uses her work to advocate for the return of African art to the countries that they originated from. Haidara’s interdisciplinary training is evident in her work as she used mixed media and carries textiles techniques into create her paintings. An example of this is in her painting Self Portrait no.2. In that artwork, she hand sewed the cowrie shells to the canvas in order to create a deeper sensory experience in the work. Haidara also loves to use colour as symbolism or to evoke certain emotions from the viewer
