Farida Zaman

Wild Abundance

Farida Zaman is a Toronto-based illustrator and designer. Trained in fine art and illustration, she has found a wide versatility of applications of her style, which has been used in: posters, book covers, children’s book illustrations, clothing, packaging, and giftware.

For her Zócalo Sketchbook, Zaman invites us into a series of five phantasmagoric greenhouses that are bursting with flowers, infusing some much-needed floral energy into our world. Notice how the wild abundance of lines and colors that make up her flowers play with the minimal depiction of the orangeries themselves. The flowers within create the buildings as much as the structure itself—not content to remain contained.
