U.K. based painter Aziz Anzabi has exhibited work in the U.S., the Netherlands, and Iran. Anzabi mixes a near-extinct Iranian style of peeling paper on canvas with traditional oil-on-canvas techniques. Anzabi’s work is very socially engaged-her latest series, “Life,” explores people who were forced to immigrate due to war. Engaging with contemporary issues through a surrealist lens, Anzabi’s paintings feature voluminous shapes, intricate details, and stark contrasts.

Artist Statement:
“I want to mix tradition into contemporary art because I think that Qajar art is the only style that is solely Iranian, with its own unique framework and techniques.”
