In Studio: Amir Askari
Amir Askari (b. 1991, Tehran) is a visual artist based in Tehran/ Frankfurt. He explores the history of art as visual narratives to find links between what is once called painting and what could be painting today. Trying to redefine painting by emphasizing on it as a progression rather than a traditional medium, he uses different mediums such as installation, ipad, printer and film. At the moment he studies painting at Städelschule in Frankfurt.
