Work From Home – Art Series

Work From Home:
Featuring Maryam Safarzadeh

It has been such an interesting opportunity for many of us to get creative over the last few months. Personally, I have embarked on a range of new projects, expanding the possibilities of my artistic reach a little further. Apparently, I am not the only Shō artist enjoying this time of creativity.

Maryam Safarzadeh has shared some beautiful work with us that she has been working on during these months in Quarantine.

Maryam Safarzadeh is an Iranian Poet and Painter who recently moved to Canada.

Maryam started painting at only 10 years old and learned many different techniques from various Masters of Painting in Iran. After graduating university with a degree in Graphic Design, she started studying with the renown Iranian Artist Taha Behbehani. These classes opened doors to many new dimensions in her art.

Maryam has had many successful solo and group exhibitions since.

Maryam has been teaching art and creation for 16 years in various art schools and institutes, as well as in her own studio.

In addition to her work as a painter, Maryam is an accomplished poet. Many Iranian composers have created songs with her poems.

Thank you Maryam for sharing your beautiful work with us. We look forward to seeing more!

Stay tuned for more updates from our Shō artists coming in the next weeks!
