About

Andisheh Avini Iranian-American (b. 1974) Untitled III (2007) Collage of Arabic or Persian Islamic calligraphic script texts. Artist shaped frame Signature stamp and I-20 (New York) gallery label verso Image: 25.25" H x 18.5" W; frame: 27.5" H x 21" W x 1.5" D. Andisheh Avini was born in 1974 in New York. Educated at Hunter College in New York, he has shown consistently in solo and group exhibitions since 2002, including locations in New York, Berlin, Los Angeles, Basel, Madrid and Paris. He currently lives and works in New York. Through his abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures he finds the sweet spot where minimalism, Pop Art, and the political collide. Andisheh Avini is known for his patterned silkscreen painting created on carpet and wood, which are informed by the history and culture of Iran. Avini frequently takes familiar political images and recontextualizes them, prompting the viewer to consider Middle Eastern politics from another perspective. Blending the visual vocabulary of his Iranian heritage with aesthetic and material experimentation, Avini’s work offers a meditation on the experiences and memories that shape our identities. He has used a variety of exotic materials including marquetry or Khatam – a traditional Iranian craft of inlaid wood, crystalline protrusions of actual minerals, peacock feathers, mother-of-pearl and parchment often in abstract geometric compositions, mediums associated with traditional Persian craft— with nods towards Minimalism, Abstract Expressionism, and other Western art movements. He has shown in many prominent galleries including solo exhibitions at Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), Galerie Frank Elbaz (Paris), I-20 Gallery (New York) and Half Gallery (New York), as well as group exhibitions at Gagosian Gallery (New York), Gavlak Projects (Palm Beach, FL), and Kunstmuseum Bern (Switzerland).
