Born in Tehran, Iran, Abol immigrated to Canada in 2006.
She finished her fine arts certificate at Emily Carr University of Art + Design in 2011 and moved to Europe in 2013, where she lived and worked for four years.
She completed her master’s degree in pattern making in Milan and did freelance work for well-known fashion houses such as Givenchy.
Abol continues her journey in art and fashion by making collages that focus on her experience as an Iranian-Canadian artist.
Place des Arts (1120 Brunette Ave., Coquitlam) launched its free video series, called Creative HeARTs, during the COVID-19 pandemic to reach new Canadians and marginalized families. It is in partnership with SHARE and S.U.C.C.E.S.S.
