Fouzia Zafar was born in 1971 in Glasgow and is a visual artist working in a diversity of media, including paint, video and print. She completed her MA in Fine Art with a distinction at the City and Guilds of London Art School in 2013. Upon graduating she received the Gwen May Student Award, from the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers, the Curwen Studio Award and was shortlisted for the Clifford Chance Postgraduate Printmaking Award. She was voted Printmakers Printer at Cumbria Printfest 2015, and was elected as a member of the Royal Society of Painter-Printmakers in 2018. She has exhibited across the UK and abroad including the Royal Scottish Academy and the Royal Academy, London. Her work is held in private collections, the Victoria and Albert Museum, Ashmolean Museum and Scarborough Gallery.

Fouzia became a member of the Glasgow Print Studio in 2017. Her work responds to the themes of family histories, migration, absence and the strangeness of memory. Her figureless exteriors/interiors and looming objects create a nostalgic atmosphere that point to traces of humanity. She describes play as a key concept of her work. Play encompasses repeatedly finding, composing and constructing new tools and processes to explore objects; history, surfaces, and qualities, whilst also constructing new narratives.
