Ishtar Bäcklund Dakhil is a multi-disciplinary artist from Sweden who spent five years on the road before attending Konstfack - University of Arts Crafts and Design in Stockholm, where she obtained a BA in Graphic design and Illustration and an MFA in Visual Communication. During her travels she competed on the world tour and explored the world through her passion for downhill skateboarding while also leaving traces of art along her adventures.“I'm a creative individual who loves to travel, skateboard, draw and create with the flow of inspiration from the now. I believe that there are no real coincidence, but life unfolding exactly in the pace we are ready to grow with. Inspiration are messages from our higher self communicating through us, and through gratitude I gladly follow with my work.”
