Maryam Shirinlou

Maryam Shirinlou was born in Tehran, Iran, in 1966. Following the Iranian Revolution of 1979, Maryam left Iran moving to France and the United States until returning to Iran at the age of 24. Her calligraphic paintings and mixed media collages are inspired by mystical Persian poetry, and are often eloquent reflections on the human form and spiritual condition.

Maryam has extensively exhibited in Iran and her work has been featured in many international galleries including the Yan-Huang Gallery, Beijing; Mah Gallery, Tehran; Blanche Gallery, Belgium; Qanat Al Qasaba Cultural Centre, Sharjah and Beverly Hills HS, Los Angeles.
