Artist
Afsoon

 

Born in Iran 1961, Afsoon spent her early childhood in Iran and late teens and early 20's in San Francisco. She received a BA in Media and Communications from Fresno State University in 1984 and presently resides in London. Her nomadic lifestyle is reflected in her work where East merges with West and the result is at once familiar and foreign. Employing various techniques such as linocuts, photography, etching and an overlay of images and text, Afsoon creates richly varied works of art.

 

With solo exhibitions in London and New York City, and collective exhibitions in Europe, Turkey, the UAE, Finland, and Hong Kong, Afsoon’s collages are globally recognised. Her work has been acquired by prestigious collections including the British Museum, The Farjam Collection, the Sabanci Collection in Istanbul and Salsali Private Museum in Dubai. Afsoon is now part of the Fondation Pierre Berge Yves Saint Laurent.
