Meet the Artist: Batoolio
Batoolio is a self-taught, multi-media, Palestinian-Canadian artist, based in Windsor. Batoolio uses art to communicate feelings that words cannot, resulting in vibrant and layered pieces of work. Batoolio was the most recent 2023 Waawiiyaatanong BIPOC Artist in Residence at Artcite Inc. and a recipient of the 2023 City of Windsor’s Arts, Culture and Heritage Fund grant.
