Azadeh Yavari, an Iranian painter who graduated in drawing and painting from the National School of Fine Arts in Paris in 1980, has been living in Iran since 1980.
Borrowed by tragic periods of her country; war and revolution, she imagines a different space-time in her artistic work. Colors and objects change, their perspectives evolve: the borders between the inside and the outside, the outside and the inside, the shadow and the light, the agitated day and the calm night, the manifest and the hidden fade. However, it keeps lines, thresholds, fabrics, curtains more or less light, a little to distinguish, especially to protect: veil and repress reality in the country where the veil is imposed. "A quest for peace and serenity against violence and social pressure" She won a first prize at the first Biennale of Painting, Museum of Contemporary Art in Teheran in 1991.
