Exhibited Artist

Amir Mobed (b. 1974, Shahroud, Iran) is an experimental artist practicing with different media. He has a BFA in Painting from the Faculty of Art and Architecture of Tehran Islamic Azad University. Mobed’s artistic practice has long been identified with large indoor and outdoor installations and environmental pieces, both temporary and permanent. His installation and environmental pieces bring about total change in the visual qualities of our living spaces, usually by adding great numbers of reproduced pieces or ready-made objects, containing different cultural and social significance in each case. His installations in the open public spaces were meant to touch the public and the passers-by, not just those who intentionally come to the museums and galleries to see the artworks. He has held 10 solo shows and his works have been included in more than 30 group exhibitions. He lives and works in Tehran.
