Historical Fanfic :: Zim Syed

Zim Syed playfully bends time and space mixing artists, genres, style, and iconography to re-write art history.  

Zim Syed is an artist, painter, muralist, and filmmaker based in Pittsburgh, PA. Throughout Syed’s work, he credits his upbringing as a Bangladeshi-American as a main source of inspiration. Born in Atlanta, Georgia, Syed shortly moved to the United Arab Emirates where he spent most of his childhood. He moved to Pittsburgh to attend the University of Pittsburgh where he got involved in the arts. He hopes to continue his work aligning with his personal history by creating large-scale murals, more intimate paintings, and working with film.
