Pooneh Oshidari /

Pooneh Oshidari(b.1984, Tehran, Iran) has received her BFA in Graphic Design in 2006 and her MFA in Illustration in 2010 from the Tehran University of Art. Oshidari is mostly concentrated on painting and drawing. “Time” is the essence of Oshidari’s recent works; both in terms of the conceptualization and in the development and presentation. Her professional career began in 2007 by participating in Iran's 7th Painting Biennial and holding her first solo exhibition Tehran. During 12 years her works were exhibited in 10 solo exhibitions in Tehran, US and Kuwait. She has participated in more than 90 group exhibitions, festivals, art residencies and art fairs in Iran and around the world. In 2013 her work was exhibited at Tehran's Illustration Biennial. Viewpoint on her paintings was influenced by her background in graphic design. The content of her present works has roots in 2011 when she started researches on Persian ancient culture and myths, and later, references to the nature and environment became more prominent in her works. In addition, over past years, she had more serious experience in working with organic mediums and time-based media, which was positively inspiring in her recent projects.
