Shahpour Pouyan

In his practice Shahpour Pouyan explores power, domination, and possession through culture. He transforms political issues into a monument of poetic and visual form. The repetition of mistakes and errors is one of his main concerns, and he reflects this by bringing historical aesthetics and mediums to his art practice. He grapples with materials provided from the political world and historic documents; the poetic qualities of power and the human condition inspire him.

Shahpour Pouyan has exhibited work at Yinchuan Museum of Contemporary Art, China; Grey Art Gallery, New York University; and The Rubin Museum of Art, New York, among others.
