Azadeh Pirazimian

Multidisciplinary Artist

 Azadeh is a multidisciplinary artist and art instructor,  based in Toronto. While She uses different material and various techniques for each project, her methodology is consistent. All her projects consist of multiple works. The prominent works that best reflect the subject matter of the series serve as blueprints for her artistic choices in regard to working material and the form that She plans to further experiment with. Most of the images, illustrations, photos and videos that She create are based on her life experience in her home country. In all of her works, She offers a critical view of socio-political and cultural issues She believes that as an artist, it is her social responsibility to open up new conversations to critically reflect on these issues. Most of the time these issues show up as taboos or red lines in society. I believe that art has the power to address the issues that people are not able to discuss otherwise. Her intention is to shift her audience’s attention to these subjects. Therefore, her artwork intends to open up a discussion in boundary-pushing ways, through which we can find a bold and bright stance facing the situation.
