Maryam Ashkanian


I was born and live in north of Iran and Caspian Sea area; I entered the Fine Arts University in Rasht in 2007, Iran. It was the best decision of my life. I studied painting in university and I could win an art prize in 2010 also I create my art work with sewing on fabric with abstract content, every traditional handmade attract me and inspired me to create my own idea of art but not in decorative form.  In addition I try to research about human through my creation (such as body, mind, portraits…). I held my first solo show in 2011 in Tehran and after that I could present my artworks in international art fairs. Recently I held my 5th solo show in Antwerp (Belgium) with title of 3.
