Reza Aramesh (b. 1970, Ahwaz) completed an MFA at Goldsmiths, University of London. Working across a wide range of materials and processes, Aramesh examines simultaneously the history of Western art and contemporary commentary on the politics and history of the Middle East, concocting a unique visual language to address the contemporary conditions of violence and biopolitics. Earlier solo exhibitions include Ab/Abnar, Leila Heller Gallery (New York), Isabelle Van den Eynde (Dubai), among others. His work has been showcased in many international group shows.
