Academic History

Professor Sharafy completed two Master’s degrees, one in Creative Painting from the Maharaja Sayajirao University of Baroda, India and the other in Art Education from Concordia University in Montreal, Canada. While his Creative Painting and Drawing degree gave him the scope to work and think creatively and conceptually, at Concordia, Sharafy was given the opportunity to learn about the digital and electronic arts, which changed the course of his art practice to one focused on integrating art and technology. These experiences contributed to the development of courses such as: 2D and 3D animation, special effects, game design, digital painting/drawing, interactive art and recently, courses that explore augmented and virtual reality. In his own artwork, Professor Sharafy explores the multimedia world and applies this understanding to his teaching.
