Shantia Zakerameli

Biography from Ayyam Auctions

Shantia Zaker Ameli was born in 1980 in Isfahan, Iran and pursued a Bachelor's degree in Painting from Isfahan University of Art and a Master's in Art Study from Tehran University. He has shown at Etemad Gallery in Dubai and Tehran, XVA Gallery in Dubai, Darat Al-Funoon in Kuwait and Artspace in London recently in group and solo exhibitions. His paintings have been featured in Christie's Dubai auctions. Zaker Ameli's body of work is wholly figurative and essentially nostalgic. This particular piece takes its inspiration from traditional portraits but is rendered in a contemporary manner through the vibrant colors that comprise the artist's oeuvre. In portraying these dignitaries through Pop colors, Zaker Ameli takes impressions of traditional representation and recalls the heroism, courage and pride of men of yesteryear. Through a fusion of colors and figures, the artist harks at the memory of gallant acts and the virtuosity of the dignitaries portrayed, all in the hope of reinvigorating such notions in contemporary thought.
