Shahin Afrassiabi

Shahin Afrassiabi’s practice revolves around conceptual approaches, resulting in elusive works that shift in between mediums and are merged in ever-changing ways. Making use of plaster, paper, oil paint and photography, Afrassiabi creates sculptures, paintings and installations, which are oftentimes informed by architectural and geometric forms. The artist’s works actively resist generalizations and homogeneity. This quality of fluid slowness that inhabits his practice creates an organic yet intricate sense of discovery within his oeuvre.

Afrassiabi holds an MFA from Goldsmiths College. Selected solo exhibitions include Paintings 2016-2018 at Soy Capitán, Berlin (2018), Radical Substance at Soy Capitán, Berlin (2015), Theory of Life at MOT International, London (2012), Subject to Form at Limoncello Gallery, London (2010). Afrassiabi’s work was part of several group shows, such as Been Caught Stealing at Kunsthalle Exnergasse, Vienna (2014), Showcase Preview at Southlondon Gallery, London (2004), Transmission Gallery, Glasgow (2002), Early One Morning, Whitechapel Gallery, London (2002), and ICA, London, (2000).
