Hiba Schahbaz was born in Karachi, Pakistan and lives in Brooklyn, NY. She works primarily with paper, black tea, and water-based pigments. She depicts women’s bodies while referencing self-portraiture, creating a space for herself and other women to tell their stories and reclaim their histories. Since migrating to the United States, her practice has expanded from miniature painting to human-scale works on paper.
Hiba showed at four exhibitions at Twelve Gates, including a solo exhibition entitled American Beauty in 2014, and a group exhibition entitled Sheherzade’s Gift in 2016
