Pooneh Oshidari

United Kingdom


Pooneh Oshidari mostly concentrates on painting and drawings. “Time” is the essence of Pooneh's recent works; both in terms of the conceptualization and in the development and presentation of the artworks. Her professional career began in 2007 by participating in Iran's 7th Painting Biennial and holding her first solo exhibition at Honar Gallery in Tehran. During 7 years, her works were exhibited in 8 solo exhibitions in Tehran, Clermont Ferrand (France), Los Angeles and Kuwait and has since participated in more than 70 group exhibitions. In 2013, Pooneh's work was accepted to be shown at Tehran's Illustration Biennial. She has also worked on several books – from poetry to children's books as an illustrator. "The viewpoint on my paintings was highly influenced by my background in graphic design. The content of my present works roots in 2011 when I started a journey on looking closer at some human emotions such as; loneliness, sorrow and fear. Along the road, references to nature became more prominent in my works. The first project that influenced my works was a distant collaboration with Art Deco College students in Paris to illustrate topics related to culture as well as stories that took place in Tehran and Paris. In addition, over the past year, I had a more serious experience in farming and gardening which was positively inspiring in my work. The last important project I participate was the Kooshk Art residency program with Artistes en Residence in France." 1984 Born in Tehran, Iran 2010 MFA, Tehran University, (Illustration) 2006 BFA, Tehran University, (Graphic Design) Member of Society of Iranian Painters Selected Solo Exhibitions: 2016, Artistes en Residence, as a one day show (open studio), Clermont-Ferrand, France 2016, “painless series”, Homa Gallery, Tehran 2014, “Waiting for Peace”, FA Gallery, Kuwait 2014, “Mother of The Earth series”, Abra Gallery, Los Angeles 2012, “Like Nobody series”, Atbin Gallery, Tehran 2011, “Silence of the Others series”, Atbin Gallery, Tehran 2010, Seyhoun Art Gallery, Tehran 2009, Iranian Artists’ Forum, Tehran And two more solo shows.
