BIO

Navid Azimi Sajadi (Tehran 1982) trained in painting at the Faculty of Architecture of Azad University in Tehran and at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome. In 2009 he won the Amedeo Modigliani Prize and after earning a Master of Fine Art in MultiMedia Sculpture at the Academy of Fine Arts in Rome, he participated in the IX Shanghai Biennale in 2013. In 2018 he won the IX Edition of the Combat Prize in the drawing and graphics section and participated in the project The Bridge, environment 1 at the MACRO Museum of Contemporary Art in Rome. In May 2019 he won the Viero Prize for contemporary art. Since 2012 he has been making exhibitions and installation in various institutions and museums in Iran, UAE, Turkey and England. His work reflects his personal experience between the two cultures, Western and Middle Eastern, ancient and contemporary. Cross-cultural codes are manipulated to create images whose forms, linked to memories, create a metaphorical environment in which viewers can connect a wide range of meanings, markers of time and space. A visual glimpse, a crossroads where history, mythology, alchemy and esotericism meet. Persian esoteric literature, religious and mythological references, from the ancient world to our contemporary society, have created the metaphorical space within which Navid's work flows.
