Born in Tehran in 1971, Pooya Aryanpour studied at the School of Plastic Arts and at the Azad University. His distinctive style is characterised by the use of white shapes which can be interpreted as a sort of conceptual and symbolic calligraphy, set against dark backgrounds, creating a sense of suspense and mystery. He calls his creations “accidental events”.
He has held solo exhibitions in Sweden and Iran. Pooya Aryanpour has also participated in a number of group shows internationally, including Whispered Secrets, Murmuring Dreams at the Mall Galleries in London.
