About the artist
Nazgol Ansarinia was born in 1979 in Tehran, Iran. She draws inspiration for her work from a detailed examination of daily routines, events, everyday ephemera and experiences in Tehran and investigates the potential for cultural and urban development in contemporary Iran.
The artist's background in design informs her practice, which employs a variety of media: from video, sculpture, found drawings and street signs - to American security policy and the patterns used for traditional Persian carpets. Ansarinia graduated from the London College of Communication in 2001 before taking a Master of Fine Arts at the California College of the Arts (CCA) in San Francisco in 2003.
She lives and works in Tehran and is represented by Green Art Gallery, (Dubai).
