Zahra Nazari

Hometown: Hamadan, Iran

Based in: New York City

 

Zahra Nazari was born in Hamedan, Iran to a family of architectural enthusiasts. Her brother is an architect and her father frequently brought her to architectural dig sites to admire ancient history and artifacts.

Throughout her entire life, she has pursued a career as a visual artist on the foundation of this inspiration from her youth. She left Iran in 2011 in order to pursue her master’s studies in art in the US. She has since traveled the world to take inspiration from architecture in many other cultures.

In her work, the deconstructed and fragmented forms of architecture collide with themes of time, memory, erosion, and degradation. She twists and curves calligraphic lines of light and dark into translucent, living, breathing paintings and sculptures that depict dreamlike architectural structures. Her brushstrokes convey emotional response to her personal life and current events.

Zahra Nazari has given artist talks and participated as a panelist at institutions including NYU, Columbia University, Cooper Union, and Pratt Institute in New York City. She has been interviewed by and published in Hamptons Art Hub, Hyperallergic, Whitehot Magazine, ZH Magazine, and many more. Her work is included in private and public collections throughout the US, Canada, and Asia.

Ms. Nazari has been a recipient of many awards such as: the AIM Fellowship from the Bronx Museum, NY; the Creative Engagement Grant from the Lower Manhattan Cultural Council, NY; an Artist Residency from Sculpture Space Residency in Utica, NY; the Mentoring Program from New York Foundation for the Arts, NY (NYFA); a Visiting Artist Fellowship from Massachusetts Museum of Contemporary Art, MA (Mass MoCA); an Artist Residency Fellowship from The Cooper Union School of Art in New York City, and; an Artist Residency from the Vermont Studio Center, VT. Nazari has exhibited both nationally and internationally in galleries and museums including: the Bronx Museum, NY; Samuel Dorsky Museum of Art, NY; MANA Contemporary, NJ; Spartanburg Art Museum, SC; Masur Museum of Art, LA; New York Academy of Art, NY; Denise Bibro Fine Art, NY; Boccara Art Gallery, NY; Painting Center, NY; A Center for Contemporary Art, NJ; Governors Island Art Fair, NY; Galerie Myrtis, MD; Illinois Institute of Art, IL; Manifest Gallery, IL; Woman Made Gallery, IL; China Millennium Monument, Beijing, China; Xuancheng Museum, Anhui, China; Lite-Haus Galerie, Berlin, Germany; Saba Institution, Tehran, Iran, and; Baran Gallery, Tehran, Iran.
