Artist Profile

ALIREZA
ASTANEH

Born 1982, Iran

Alireza Astaneh is a plastic artist living and working in Tehran, Iran. In 2014 he Received the “A” degree of artistic licence from the Ministry of Culture in Iran. He also had received the Elit Diploma of the “Iranian calligraphers society”, 1997.

Being calligraphy to its essence, his works embrace a different principle. Astaneh has created the formal structure of his works by the inspiration of originality of Minimalism.

In the recent years, Alireza Astaneh has gained an unchallenged position in the field of combining Calligraphy and Contemporary Art, which is considered to be a well-known figure in the contemporary Iranian art. The recent art series of Astaneh while carrying neo-conceptual artificial implications associates the geometric method of Islamic architecture. He tries to show an equality between contemporaneity and the idea of being meaningless by his emphasis on the artificial mood of repetition.

His artworks kept in prestigious private and governmental collections like al-Sabah Kuwait,

Al Nahyan UAE, the Agricultural Bank and the Municipality of Tehran and the Malek Museum. His paintings and sculptures are displayed in Miami art fair and Venice Biennial. His artworks sold in prestigious auction houses like Sotheby’s, Christie’s, Tehran Auction, Magic of Persia and the young collectors auction Ayyam Gallery. He had exhibitions in London and Paris, Geneve, Dusseldorf Dubai and Sharjah and Tehran. His huge iron sculpture artwork was also installed last year as Khayyam in Tehran’s urban space.

In his recent collection, Flower Performance challenges the apparent attraction of the text and the implications of the viewer’s grunts. With such an approach, he exhibits an array of letters that can be found in the minimalist range of minimalism and Dadaism.
