Shezad Dawood (born 1974) is an artist born in and based in London.
His multi-media works are inspired by his varied cultural heritage, having a Pakistani mother, an Indian father and an Irish stepmother. This is mirrored in his interest in the variety within different forms of art and the systems which society use to judge their value.
He received his MA from the Royal College of Art in 2000 and PhD from the School of Arts at Leeds Metropolitan University (now Leeds Beckett University) in 2008 (Fine Art), titled 'The killing of Chief Crazy Horse : a metaphorical allegory in 3 parts'
