AMIRMOHSEN SHAHHEIDARI

As an artist, I strive to find amicable ways to evoke mine and my viewers’ thoughts and feelings towards worthwhile topics. To simplify in order to make even the most complex or alien subject matter amicable. This can be achieved through various methods as demonstrated by various art movements of the past. To achieve this in my work I often employ simple imagery and/or lines combined with the lack of color, or the use of only solid colors. I also believe that humor can further encourage viewers to explore ideas and places that may otherwise be intricate, unknown, uncomfortable or even intimidating. To bring fresh ideas to the foreground of people’s minds. To make the world not a smaller place, but a less intimidating, more inclusive and enjoyable one.
