Shezad Dawood (born 1974) is an artist based in London.

Dawood was born in London. His multi-media works are inspired by his varied cultural heritage, having a Pakistani mother, Indian father and an Irish stepmother.[1] This is mirrored in his interest in the variety within different forms of art and the systems which society use to judge their value.[2]

He received his MA from the Royal College of Art in 2000.
