Biography from Ayyam Auctions:
Please note: Artists not classified as American in our database may have limited biographical data compared to the extensive information about American artists.

Nazar Moosavinia was born in Abadan, Iran in 1979, he received his Bachelor of Arts in Painting from Jahad University, his Master of Arts in Painting from Azad Art and Architecture University, also in Tehran, and is a dedicated member of the Iranian Painters Society (SIP). Exhibiting solo and collectively since 2006 in Tehran, London and Dubai, Moosavinia’s works have auctioned in Sotheby’s 2008 and 2010 Modern and Calligraphic Arab and Iranian Art sales in London. One of the most imaginative artists to date, Moosavinia’s canvases erupt in beautifully and skillfully surreal worlds. Reminiscent of the creativity of Hieronymous Bosch, Moosavinia creates a fantastical and nightmarish context in his works. Presenting a contemporary point of view to Rumi’s allegorical story The Merchant and the Parrot, this work draws contrast between the past and contemporary world in the Orient; a contrast that poses a challenge to the romantic air and inflamed climate of societies in the East. This is especially intensified by depiction of bones, body organs and bruises in stark contrast with flowers, candles, and butterflies. In his contemporary depiction, individuals either become ritually masochistic or receive threats from an external force.

One of the most imaginative artists to date, Moosavinia’s canvases erupt in beautifully and skillfully surreal worlds. Reminiscent of the creativity of Hieronymous Bosch, Moosavinia creates a fantastical and nightmarish context in the series Recollection of a Hen, in which the progression of captive hen becomes captive human. Of the series Ali Etehad stated, 'the characters represented in these paintings are a collection of animal-like humans and human- like animals; created years ago, they went through hardships of all kinds, time after time. Wounded, sometimes even dead, they were abandoned to their fate: standing naked and truthful in front of the viewers.'
