Rojina (RJ) Farrokhnejad currently lives in Vancouver, BC. She came to the city in the early 2000’s and quickly connected with the LGBT community, finding like-minded people as herself. She proudly calls this city home.
Her passions are many; however, what is most Important to her is creating works of art. RJ is a passionate artist, creating images that are both abstract and focused on the paint. Keeping figures within the frame helps provide a sense of narrative. Her most recent works push the boundaries of representation, integrating abstraction within imaginative figurative compositions. RJ wants to tell a global story of diversity, inclusion, and acceptance, in non-verbal way.
