Zahra Mohamadi

“I am striving to depict the subjugation of identities and bodies that have been brought into captivity, to narrate their sufferings, to recount the violence inflicted upon them, and to portray the power that continuously stifles the expression of these bodies and silences their voices.”

Multidisciplinary Artist


Zahra Mohamadi (born 1992 in Tehran) is an Iranian multidisciplinary artist who lives and works in Tehran. She has studied painting at the Fine Art school and sculpture at the Art University of Tehran. Mohamadi has exhibited her work in over 30 group exhibitions in the UK, Germany, Italy, Greece, Russia, United States, Belgium, Netherlands, and Iran. She works with different media such as sculpture, collage, drawing, and printmaking to explore themes like violence, women’s rights, historical censorship, identity, the body, gender, sexual orientation, and taboos. Mohamadi’s artistic goal is to question rather than cast judgment.
