Flight of the falcons (2013)
In the Spring of 2013, I was approached by the British museum to produce a piece for the exhibition of WISE MEN FROM THE EAST. This is the description of my work which was on display for 6 months in the coin department of the museum.
“The Iranian-born artist Afsoon has chosen a coin of the Sasanian king Khusrau II Parviz (AD 591–628) as the central subject of her print commissioned for this exhibition. The winged crown of the king, the birds and the sewn pearls all allude to the Kingly Glory. The cypress trees and clouds are in the style of Persian miniature paintings.” – The British Museum
The Beatles (2012)
After a long period of planning and discussion, I produced this piece for an artist/collector from the Middle east in the Autumn of 2012.
During the Summer of 2010, I spent a few weeks in an artists colony in the city of Mosonmagyaróvár in Hungary. I worked on the theme of migration and represented myself and my place within that community as a migrating bird. The result are kept in the contemporary museum in the city.
