Alireza Rajabi (b. 1991) has received his BFA in Illustration from the Islamic Azad University. Before his academic years, he was attracted to graffiti painting. Since 2009, he turned to figurative drawing. In the meantime, he also started playing in a heavy metal band. After a while, however, he chose painting/drawing over music, because he considers painting to be a challenge to face each day in a new way.
Walking on borders and not making judgments with certainty. Seeking to make something appear that is right before our eyes while it has always been hidden or trying to hide itself in order to see the fragility of man from a distance. And we know what that is while we act as if we don’t. The border between this knowing and unknowing is where I see my hidden or distorted self in a blur, similar to an infant.
