art of resistance, Iran

Tarlan Rafiee: The printess of Iran.

Tarlan Rafiee is an Iranian visual artist/printmaker, photographer and painter. Rafiee has held many painting and printmaking exhibitions in the best known galleries and art museums in Iran.  She now works as a tutor in printmaking in her own studio and other art institutes. Her style could be described as edgy colorful vintage, a blast from the past, but in its essence very relevant today. Rafiee says her  greatest inspiration comes from popular culture, everyday life of ordinary people, their nostalgias and their hopes.

Here are some of Rafiee’s artworks.
