Welcome to Charity!
Azin Zolfaghari (b. 1982, Iran) holds an MA in Painting from Tehran University of Art, Iran (2021). Her work is characterised by unusual cityscapes depicting muted slabs of desolate façades with minimal signs of life. The only hint of a human presence comes in the form of windows, leaving the viewer wondering what the inside of the structure may hold.
Zolfaghari’s works have been shown in several festivals, including the 7th International Art Festival for Peace, Baroque Gallery, Tehran (2020); the 9th Annual Selected New Generation, Shirin Gallery, Tehran (2017); the Jokal Painting Festival, Tehran (2019-2020); the Sateen Kish Art Festival, Tehran (2021); and the Alborz Modern Painting Festival, Tehran (2020). Other notable exhibitions include In Situ, Vista Plus Gallery, Tehran (2021) and Episode 07, Mohsen Gallery, Tehran (2021).
She was also Grand Prize Winner of The 2022 Sovereign Asian Art Prize.
