Artist Sayah Sarfarez translates political movements and uprising occurring in Iran into a drawing series in a drawing series in which childlike, almost naive forms and innocent aesthetics are juxtaposed with threatening motifs. Figures within these pictures are abstracted into flat-coloured shapes; crowded scenes appear simplistic and innocent in nature until a violent narrative appears. The basis of Sarfaraz' drawings and compositions are rooted in Persian miniature paintings which she expresses in a contemporary format with modern references.
