Shida (born 1990) is an Australian multidisciplinary artist best known for his large scale murals. Shida's work explores the relationship between Ritual, Sexuality and Love. Psychedelic entities are entwined in ceremonial acts, transcending the bounds of known reality. In a world where society’s issues are becoming increasingly gendered and people are seemingly more divided than ever due to the rise of identity politics, Shida seeks to turn this tide like an ancient shaman with each works being in essence an invocation, an energetic manifestation, a prayer to joy.
