Shirin’s work often explores images of the past, a painter whose canvases are often divided; fascination with the relationship between order and chaos, a determined contemporary artist intrigued by time. She combines elements of symbolism, spirituality, and a sense of time in her work.
Clearly, years of patient and laborious research have moved her painting towards a simplification of forms to the extreme. Liberated almost from the subject, Shirin tries to challenge the world of forms. She attains a kind of abstraction both rigorous and poetic.
Shirin was born in Tehran and studied at the Behzad School of Fine Art. When she was eighteen she moved to the UK where she studied combined art in Bristol for two years and later went to Bath Academy of Art and studied for a BA in Graphic Design.
