Elham Pourkhani

Elham Pourkhani (b.1979, Tehran, Iran) received her BA in Persian Painting from the University of Applied Science and Technology. Pourkhani looks at Persian miniature art with a special lens. By using ancient miniatures and putting them in a context of her own, she appropriates them. Pourkhani creates her work in the same structure as Persian paintings, but by using new elements she directs them toward our current lifestyle. The artist shows the viewers a kind of disorder while still maintaining order. Her art being narrative and dependent on the text prompts us to search and explore these works.
