Afsoon (b.1961, Tehran) is an Iranian artist with a life story spanning Iran, California, and London, where she has been based since 1988. Her art beautifully blends eastern and western influences through a combination of text, images, linocuts, and photography to produce acutely multicultural works. With a deeply personal yet universally applicable approach, Afsoon’s art engages audiences with its layers of interpretation, balancing humour, playfulness, and sophistication.

For the launch of ITERARTE, Afsoon was commissioned to create Send Me a Postcard, an evocative series which bring together vintage paper cut-outs and family photos from countries she has visited. She has shown extensively worldwide, with notable exhibitions at Shirin Gallery, New York and Asia House, London. Her work is held in renowned collections including the British Museum and LACMA.
