Artist’s Story

Elham Etemadi currently resides in Strasbourg, France / Having completed her PhD in Fine Art, Elham uses a theoretical approach to her artworks by delicately creating impulses through a vivid game of colour / She creates subtle yet expressive discourse - her subject matter combines the traditional and contemporary whilst still maintaining a unique synergy between the two / Elham is currently pursuing her artistic production abroad after the success of her first two solo shows in France/

“My paintings evoke dreams, a magical world of a thousand colours, making me wonder about my in uences and my choices.”
