Biography


Parsa Mostaghim

Born in 1998, lives and works in Tehran, Iran. An experimental artist who drops the other common themes of medium and style; conveys the ramifications of cultural
socio-political issues that explore the relationship between the artist and society. His
paintings offer strange and compelling juxtapositions of an allusive and ambiguous world alongside fascinating, detailed elements of surprises that created a state between realism and abstraction to the viewer.
His interest in animation and video games made him paint from early childhood. His paintings continuity got him to The School of Fine Arts from high school. Simultaneously he shifted from illustration to painting, and that led him to practice painting more professionally.
His practice ranges from figurative, mixed media painting and drawing to sculpture, video, and soundscape with various mediums and techniques. He attempts to capture a specific mental state that he experienced before through visual memories' mental image snapshots and change it to sonic or visual forms. He tries to present a new experience of collective memory or even universal viewpoints.
As he says, this quote from Karlheinz Stockhausen became his lifetime inspiration. “Change the method, new method; methods change the experience, new experience change man.”
Parsa participated in a number of group exhibitions nationally and internationally as an individual artist, and also as a member of “Eastern Whistle” which is a collective artists group of the 90's generation who demands a change to the Iranian contemporary art scene; Through non conformal, creative thinking and expressing the genuine personal experiments of the second post-revolutionary generation. Furthermore, he held two solo shows throughout the past four years. (2017-2020)
