ANDISHEH AVINI

Brooklyn-based artist Andisheh Avini’s (b. 1974) artistic practice includes painting, drawing, printmaking, and sculpture, often incorporating the traditional craft of marquetry. Avini explores the duality of his own identity by combining iconic Iranian images like Persian calligraphy, decorative peacock motifs, and political figures with occidental concepts of minimalism and abstraction. Avini’s approach speaks to a larger globalized society of nomads and dispersed individuals and reflects a contemporary multicultural experience to which many can relate.
