TECHnically Creative: Georgia Tech Alumni and the Arts
Monday, December 14, 2020, 11 a.m.
A virtual conversation with Georgia Tech Alumni working in the arts.
Mehwish Wasi is an Atlanta bred and based contemporary abstract artist. A graduate of Georgia Tech and a software consultant by trade, Mehwish finds art to be the creative outlet her brain craves. Sit with her as she chats about the joy she finds in creating abstract art because of the ability to experiment, to give up control, and to allow intuition guide her process. As a local Atlantan, Mehwish wants her art to impact her community - she currently volunteers with the Atlanta Community Food Bank and donates 5% of the proceeds from her art to help local Georgians fight food insecurity.
