        Bardia Hashemzadeh

        Bardia Hashemzadeh (b. 1996, Tehran, Iran) is a Tehran-based visual artist. He has a bachelor’s degree in architectural engineering and uses tiles as a component to design and build his works. In this collection of his works, he seeks to show the characteristics and hidden concepts in different characters, animals and actions by pixels (as the smallest visual element) and color. The amount of detail in works of art has a great impact on people’s recognizing and perceiving of the same shapes and designs. By reducing these details, in spite of simplifying the subject, Bardia Hashemzadeh creates a vast horizon for the audience, giving them different paths to explore each work.

        Minoo Yalsohrabi

        Minoo Yal Sohrabi (b. 1992, Tabriz, Iran) has graduated in Painting from Tehran University of Arts. Gravure was her first medium of art from the outset of her career, but little by little, she opted for painting as her main media. Kitchenware and snacks build in the core subject of her artworks and highlight the relation between man and things. Moreover, she draws attention to the ornamental characteristic of elements in her painting. An indispensable element in her paintings, Rose is clearly considered as an ornament. Symmetry as well as symmetrical compositions are a way through which she can conduct a deeper study on ornaments. In her works she explores beauty and resorts to composition, colors and her visual subjects. Currently, Minoo works and lives in Tabriz.

        Vanoosheh Kazemian

        Vanoosheh (b. 1998, Sari, Iran) is a Painting graduate from Tehran Sooreh University of Arts. It’s been two years since she focused on working and studying on Rosemary as herb. The herb embracing her everyday life, turning into -after a long time being taken for granted- the main single element of her œuvre d’art, keeping her busy exploring its visual characteristics as of today. She has gone beyond creating mere visual recreations and through a back-and-forth approach to her subject, she has challenged a part of her work to abstraction. An abstraction born from scrutiny and contemplation in one herb to be precise. The fundamental exploitability of her artworks lies on the fact that how immense and examinable can be the realm of the quest of the invisible surrounding us. Vanoosheh lives and works in Tehran.

        Ila Firouzabadi

        (b. 1980, Tehran, Iran) based in Montreal since 2012, Ila Firouzabadi is an interdisciplinary artist who focuses on ambiguous and sensitive forms, aiming to depict threatening, or at times threatened, worlds that refer to the tensions and conflicts inherent in present society through drawings and a combination sculpture and installation.
        Firouzabadi received a BA in graphic design in 2005 from Azad University of Art and Architecture in Tehran and graduated from École supérieure des arts décoratifs de Strasbourg in 2009.
        She has exhibited her work around the world, notably at Keramikmuseum and Kuenstlerkreis Ortenau Gallery Germany 2009, Musée Théodore Deck and Espace Apollonia France 2010, OBORO Art Center Canada 2013, MAI Cultural Center Canada ,2015. She also did residences in Tabakalera in Spain and Servais family collection in Brussles, Belgium.

        Miiiin

        Yasamin Salehi “Miiiin” (b. 1992, Isfahan, Iran) graduated in Arts & Crafts, specialized in Ceramic, from the University of Kashan. During the past ten years, she found painting as her principal focus which has led to her effort of combining her previous massive ceramic experience with painting to finally give birth to a solution for expressing her inner ideas. In her last collection “You look absent fella!” she took the most of volatile imagination, reaching the next step to flamboyant, fantastic paintings from the form of lower leg just to manifest an inner and at the same time, dreamlike situation. Puddle is the principal theme of her works, which she is busy exploring these days and through which she tries to incorporate her mental everyday events into images. To yield this itinerary, she has equipped herself with mass, digital illustration and fabric motifs as her raw materials. Miiiin is currently living and working in Isfahan.

        Ofogh Hosseini
        Negin Sadaf
        Sorahi Rafati

        Sarah Rafti (b. 1997, Tehran, Iran) So far, the principal method in her artworks has been collage on paper. To begin with, she uses a palette of colored paper to trace her pencil sketches on it. Once entered performance phase, her drawings are changeable and she has no insistence on keeping their primary forms. Basically, changeability, destruction and reconstruction of a collage are considered to be a formidable feature for Sorahi that evoke the artist’s subconscious. In her previous collection, “Big Big Party”, she demonstrated man’s condition in sceneries that all referred to Iran. Now, however, geography is not of utmost importance for her, her new works are defined in a geography in her mind. Instinctiveness and free creation are the highest priorities in Sorahi’s artworks. She is currently making an animation of her collages and hopes to keep her quest of mediums.She lives and works in Tehran. 

        Yaghoub Ammamehpich
        Omq

        (b. 1988, Tehran, Iran) The walls of Tehran have been representing the notion of depth since 2007. Depth is a word drawn from human’s inside, nature and conscience; a secret corner in every human being’s mind and heart; that part of human’s inward and profoundness accompanying him to the end of the rainbow. The repetition of Depth on life-deprived, void walls of the city is a reminder of the numerous layers of its being. His artworks are a love affair happening between Persian orthographic lines and dot ornamented with a touch of the street.

        Ghaar

        (b. 1994, Tehran, Iran) The cave: man’s first shelter, a cozy corner where his inner depth and contemplation come to existence. A blind, usually dim spot where gives birth to light and creativity. The cave will be man’s last shelter amidst his hectic urban life full of ruckus.
        Ghaar’s first activity began by him writing his own name under various forms of Persian calligraphy all through the city, marking himself as one of the most productive Iranian graffiti writers. His passion and focus on the form of letters in Persian graffiti writing styles led him to a point where he met the ancient calligraphy world. To him, the calligraphy world is directly connected to today’s graffiti; inclination towards writing beautifully, cultivating style in writing and giving identity to letters. After years of experience and learning calligraphy, he then managed to reach a new identity in Iranian graffiti writing style through combining his personal visual experiences. From Ghaar’s perspective, Graffiti is calligraphy made of the city and its streets.

        Xamoosh

        (b. 1989, Tehran, Iran) Xamoosh began graffiti by putting his signature on the walls of the western districts of Tehran, and through more than a decade of activity in Persian graffiti writing, became one of the precursors and influencers in this area. Having created various calligraphy styles, he then decided he was going to expand his career, using his love for painting as a fresh opportunity to gain new experiences and step into the field of urban art in a new level.
        His active presence in the city during the last few years was replete with creating images talking of social issues and cultural origins, generally bearing short but deep messages.
        The image of a lonely human in different situations is one of the remarkable points used by Xamoosh to transfer his message and abstract notions. A part of his late works has been inspired by Iranian miniature and Persian poetry; a selection of these will be shown in the forthcoming event.
        He says: I have set up a special connection with the city and its streets beyond social rules and structures, always tried to add things to streets and receive others from them. This connection has been going on during these years, offering a great source of inspiration to me. I remember the day I was heading to Hafiz tomb by taxi, sunken in the thoughts that how, in the course of centuries, names have become places, losing their meaning more than before. In this collection, I have tried to illustrate a drop of the deep sea of Iranian culture, art and literature from the perspective of Xamoosh.

        Saraanj

        Sara Ranj Keshan “Saraanj” (b. 1993, Tehran, Iran) holds a Bachelor degree in Painting and Arts Research from Tehran Central Open University. Feeding her curiosity and reflection, Saranj goes on a quest about Abrahamic religions with the visual culture of which she shares the most kinship. Inspired by the Revelation of John the Apostle, she believes it is due to man’s escape from the dreadful inner solitude that he finds refuge in words. “First, there was word …” creates a world of the unsaid, believes Saranj. The culture of Christianity has its foundations in image, and one of the key features of these images is the representation of pain. Once inspired by this visual culture, the fathomable meaning of solitude and her own ideology, she reaches out to painting and mass. In her previous collection, “Absolutely Personal, for Public” Saranj shared a fragment of her inner words with her audience. Basically, she seeks to articulate herself with unknown, new words. She is now living and working in Tehran.

        Atena Fereydouni

        Atena Fereydooni born in 1987,Tehran,Iran. Chart member of Iranian Painters’ Association
        She graduated in Painting from Tehran Fine Arts University in 2011. Her first individual exhibition was held in Tehran, giving way to her participation so far in a score or more of foreign and domestic collective exhibitions. An artwork by her, PEACE, commissioned by Iranian Artists’ Forum, was presented as a gift to the European office of the United Nations in Geneva.
        The core of her attention in her paintings and sketches lies upon the nature and human, the connection between natural elements, humans, the contrast and resemblance of archeological as well as modern notions.
        Through a questioning fault-finder view, she entrenches deep down human relationships and existential experience, alongside sociological and anthropological issues in her works. She is currently living in Tehran.

        Hanie Farhadinik

        She was born in 1987,in Tehran. She got her master’s degree in Painting from the University of Arts in Tehran. Her first individual exhibition took place in Tehran, in 2015. So far, she has been a part of more than 15 collective exhibitions. In 2015, she got an admission for participating in a one-month course held by the Summer Academy of Salzbourg, Austria – by the end of which her artworks were exhibited there. She defines this experience as one of the most important turning points of her art life, for it’s a remarkable achievement to get acquainted with artists from throughout the world.
        For her, painting is inspired by nature, leaving her the conviction that it is indeed the biggest most eminent source for creating her pieces of art. The subjects of her paintings stem from moments of deep insights within her soul and the silence nurtured by nature, as well as her personal experiences. Colors and forms reveal an endeavour to recreate a world from her view. What Hanieh believes and tries to suggest to her audience, is the moment present once face-to-face with nature and the creation of her artwork, floating in a state of mindlessness. It is in that moment that nature looms as the view of a child, free from clichés.

        In this collection, Hanieh has tried to reflect the virginity of her view on nature, suggesting her cohabitation with it to the audience.

        Mehrdad Jafari

        (b.1985, Mazandaran, Behshahr, Iran) He has graduated in handicrafts from Shiraz arts university and started his career in 2014 with the exhibition Panah. He has established the basis and methods of his work upon empiricism and improvisation which provide the opportunity to freely use different tools and materials. Human interconnections are an important part of his works. In addition to numerous collective and individual exhibitions, he has been holding mental sketches workshops.

        (b. 2001, Isfahan, Iran) She is a painting undergraduate in the University of Arts and Architecture. Her love for the world of painting was the moving factor that pushed her to experiencing this practice as an autodidact. Also, she has had a knapsack filled with experiences in digital painting and rendering animations. She does her best to depict good mood and simplicity in her works through objects.

        Kazhal Fakhri (b. 1989, Kermanshah, Iran) is a Tehran-based visual artist focused on drawing,
        printmaking, and painting. She is a graduate of the Faculty of Fine Arts at the University of Tehran
        (BA, Painting, 2014; MA, Illustration, 2017) and English Language and Literature from the Faculty of
        Foreign Languages and Literatures at the University of Tehran (BA, 2011). In her work, Kazhal
        explores themes such as the fragility and delicacy of natural phenomena and relevant analogies with
        human experience. As so, her work is a study of integrity in the bodies of things, and how an object’s
        totality is defined and observed within its structure. Her pieces frequently derived from alterations
        made on photographs, and using meticulous technique, reference the realistic qualities found in
        photography.

        Nazanin Aharipour

        This artist possesses a dreamy fantasy-like pictorial world. Creating pieces of art, she does not confine herself within the ties of a particular material. She benefits from decoration, video, sounds, convenient objects and everything that facilitates expressing an idea. With this, the audience is faced with idea-oriented, intensely personal works just to savor a once-in-lifetime experience once poking every nooks and crannies of each piece.
        There is more about her to come in “Soo”.

        Amir Karimi
        Amin Moazzami
        Maryam Farhang

        (b.1983, Tehran, Iran) She is a painter and poet based in Tehran, Iran. She is also a photographer and video maker. She received her M.F.A from arts department of University of Science and Culture in Tehran, Iran. She is interested in interacting with other artists through different mediums.
        She curated virtual and physical exhibition Encounter for cultural exchange between Austrian and Iranian artists with the support of Austrian Cultural Forum Tehran in Soo Contemporary on 8 of March 2021. She has had several group exhibitions and festivals, among which the most noteworthy would be her attendance in Meridian International Center cultural event named Whishes and Dreams: Iran’s New Generation Emerges which was inaugurated in Washington D.C and held for 2 years in different states of the USA from 2008 to 2010.
        She has had her solo exhibition in 2018 in Tehran, Iran with the title of The Silent Narrative of Things, and in 2019 in Primmersdorf, Austria with the title of Love. In 2020, her book Me and the Persimmon Tree with 45 paintings and poems from her Home series was published in Austria by Verlag Bibliothek der Provinz, edited by Michael Pilz. In 2021, in Vienna, Austria, her poems were read in Farsi and German and her paintings were installed for one month in Aktionsradius Wien.

        Mimi(Maryam) Amini
        Sale Sharifi

        Sale Sharifi (b. 1989, Tehran, Iran) has been passionate about painting on paper. Political and social history, literature and commemoration are the original themes of his works as up to present day. His paintings’ expressiveness could be seen through a gentle navigation of his works. Noticeable historical hints are present in most of his works. They have studied days in the past and at the same time, do not intend to reflect a nostalgic image. Absence of man in Sale’s works is indeed him being excluded from the universe he depicts. On the other side, he loves Iranian painting, owing his technics to Qajar miniature and paintings. Although he has them his own, neither in form nor in meaning he is pretender, but enchanter. In some sort, the origin of pencil on paper in the majority of his works can be concluded to be one of Iranian Painting’s Traditions. Currently, Salé lives and works in Tehran.

        Pani Bolbolabadi

        (b. 1993, Rasht, Iran) She has a journey among sketching, painting, and sculpturing. Her works are expressive and owe to her scrupulous view of her surroundings. Artists like Pani might be a handful, that’s why more reflection is needed once face-to-face with her works. For crossing the border of surface of what’s new and fathoming its meaning is way harder than analyzing familiar art.

        Abel hartooni
        Mohsen Fouladpour
        Hoda Zarei
        Kaveh Azizian

        The early works of Kaveh included collages having for the main idea humour with miniature painting forms and Iranian myths. His later works though, reflect clearly his keen interest in monsters and cats since childhood, presumably thriving to expose his mental world through deploying these creatures in a familiar environment.

        Peyman Konjkav

        (b. 1986, Tehran, Iran) He establishes a link among painting, academic drawing and technology just to profit them all in order to develop his ideas. In his former works, a trace of memories not so long gone from the era of the advent of computer in homes is seen, nothing to be short of his artistic vision. Peyman could be placed in the same family as artists like Justin Mortimer, with a more modern look and less dependence in comparison with mere painting in accomplishing a piece of art.
        Peyman Konjkav has accompanied the collective exhibition of “Resemblance” in Soo gallery.

        Sam Nikmaram
        Toktam Saberi Ashrafi

        Toktam Saberi Ashrafi (b. 1980) She is a graduate in English Literature from Kerman University. She has a 10-year background of incessant activity in publishing, releasing books especially in the field of visual arts under the title Sheypoor publishing house. During recent years, her focus is not only on books, but also on drawing, finding this a medium to express her thoughts and studies. Photography, text, motion picture, print, and the act of drawing alone, in its conventional sense, have all served in her works. Beneath the layers of the collection “Sacred Geometry”, she has treated time, space, and time-space concepts. In her last collection “Use your illusion”, she has created abstract images based upon illusion, imagining the unseen in this world in the same level as the seen, having glimpses to the time, space and time-space notion. Toktam now lives and works in Tehran.
