Hamedeh Mashiyati was born in 1983 in Iran. She started studying as a classic calligrapher in 1997 and undertook the path of contemporary calligraphy in 2010.
Hamedeh’s style is a combination of Persian lettering, mixing poetry and calligraphy with abstract images. Her artworks have been exhibited in Iran since the 2010s, and she was featured in worldwide Calligraphy exhibitions such as the Calligraphies Conversation in 2016, presenting a diverse variety of contemporary calligraphy art. In 2017, she also exhibited her paintings at the 34th session of the Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, alongside several other artworks by Iranian artists who had taken part in four editions of the Art for Peace Festival previously held in Iran.
Hamedeh’s art pieces are inspired by an essential metaphysical and spiritual reflection and aim to show the artist’s inner journey through her conscience. By juxtaposing Persian letters and words with open spaces, she expresses the concept of love as a motive force and her final wish to be in harmony with the universe.
