Stephanie Boutari is a Canadian/Egyptian artist and designer. Born and raised in Bahrain, Stephanie came to Canada in 2005 for her post-secondary education, completing her bachelor’s and master’s degrees in architecture at the University of Waterloo. It was during her master’s thesis that she gravitated back to her roots in art, exploring urban art and murals as a medium through which her thesis focused on the role of architecture’s outer surfaces both historically and in the contemporary urban environment. Stephanie pursues her passion for the arts full-time as an independent artist and designer living and working in Kitchener-Waterloo, Ontario. She’s worked with big brands such as Shutterstock and Shopify.
