Peyman Shafieezadeh (UK associate) is a multidisciplinary artist working across drawing, sculpture, image-based collage, and installation. At the core of his material explorations lies his attempt to reach an abstract realm where thinking becomes possible. This is achieved by combining various visual, symbolic, or linguistic elements.

As a UK associate at Delfina, Peyman will focus on the question of how to capture the ‘image’ of an artwork. He will work on articulating this question within his practice.

Peyman is the co-founder of the Vatttan Project, Iran. He holds a B.A. in painting from Azad Art and Architecture University of Iran. Peyman has showcased his artwork in numerous solo and group exhibitions at renowned Iranian and international art venues. Notably, he received first prize at the 7th Tehran National Sculpture Biennale (2017) held at the Tehran Museum of Contemporary Art (TMoCA). His artistic contributions have extended to prominent events such as the 5th International Art Biennale in Beijing, hosted by the National Art Museum of China (2012), and the 4th International Print Biennial in Guanlan at Guanlan’s Original Printmaking Base in Shenzhen, China (2013).

Peyman was born in Iran and is currently based in London and Tehran.
