Arghavan Khosravi’s Paintings Take Influence from Home Country’s History

by Andy SmithPosted on

Iran-born painter Arghavan Khosravi creates surreal scenes that blend historical Persian motifs and pop cultural iconography. The artist’s own statement says that she is “deeply connected to her own personal experience of the culture and politics of her homeland of Iran that probe both personal and political experiences.” Much of her recent work has been crafted as acrylic on found textiles.

“In Arghavan Khosravi’s dream-like images, she illuminates a world where most people have limited mobility across national boundaries,” Morgan Lehman Gallery says. “Weaving this contemporary reality with the language of graphic novels and manuscript illumination, she suggests a lineage of migration that presents a shifting space where the public and private are interlocked and indivisible”
