I’m Shirin, an Iranian Artist, I live in Denmark since 2018. when I was a child I understood I have Artistic talent and drawing ability, I always have loved illustration and everything related to Art, because of this interest I studied Graphic Design at Art School and University.
When I was 18 years old I had my first experience as a character designer in the game industry of Iran and It made me so excited, so I decided to be a part of the game development team. I have worked in the game industry over ten years as a 2D artist, art director, UI designer, character designer, concept artist and environment designer. Particularly I have had the chance to be involved in a variety of projects with different genres. In addition, I have written some game stories for computer games in Iran.
I immigrated to Denmark on a work visa in 2018 and worked as a graphic designer at a game company in Copenhagen, but after living in this beautiful city I decided to continue painting professionally, Because painting inspires me that I am free, and I don't want to limit myself. Actually I think it’s what I am going do for the rest of my life.
My surreal paintings are taken from inner feelings and express the deep spiritual suffering of human being. I depict pains that are not visible or audible. On the other hand, as much as I enjoy complexity and conceptualism, I also favor simplicity in art. Therefore, I use line art to express my inner feelings.
My purpose in creating such works is to communicate, express sympathy and encourage inner freedom.
