Shahriar Ahmadi (b.1979, Iran)

Shahriar Ahmadi was born in 1979 in Kamiaran, Iran. He holds both a BA and a MFA in Painting from the University of Art, Tehran. He has had many solo and group exhibitions in Tehran, 
Middle East, Europe, China and the USA.

Ahmadi began his journey into the world of art with calligraphy creating portraits with words. He then realized that painting does for him what no other artistic medium can; it stops time in its tracks. Each of his paintings is a slice of his imagination in a single moment, yet they reveal all his secrets within that moment. Ahmadi paint to place next to each other all these moments in time which represent life, to engage in a dialogue with history and present a kind of dialectic.
