Arshia Sobhan is an interdisciplinary researcher and artist based in Vancouver, Canada. He is driven by curiosity and has a love for science that led him to get his BSc in Physics. After more than 15 years of working in a range of fields including digital creative direction, graphic design, commercial photography, and UI/UX design, he continued his interdisciplinary journey and got his Master of Design in Digital Futures from OCAD University, during which he explored the potentials of using Generative Adversarial Networks (GANs) in Islamic calligraphy.
