Joseph Siddiqi's art practice is rooted in the methods and materials of painting and drawing. Over the past twenty years, he has worked with various approaches and subject matter, developing a personal visual language of expressive shapes, symbols and metaphors. ​His recent work explores connections between mindfulness, meditation and the creative impulse using a combination of abstract and organic forms, rendered in a range of colours, textures and mediums, including oil, acrylic and collage on linen as well as colour pencils and pastel on paper. 

Joseph Siddiqi's 
paintings have been shown in solo exhibitions in Toronto, Ottawa, Calgary and Montreal, as well as in group exhibitions across Canada and in the United States. He has been awarded grants for his work by the Concordia University Part-time Faculty Association, the Canada Council for the Arts, the Conseil des arts et des lettres du Québec, and the Elizabeth Greenshields Foundation. His paintings can be found in public and private collections, including the Canada Council Art Bank in Ottawa, Colart Collection in Montreal, and Athabasca University Art Collection in Northern Alberta. He holds a Master of Fine Arts in Painting from Boston University and teaches in the Department of Studio Arts at Concordia University in Montreal.
