Through his abstract paintings, drawings and sculptures, Andisheh Avini (b. 1974, New York) finds the sweet spot where minimalism, Pop Art, and the political collide. Avini re-contextualizes shared histories through a modernist filter, and in doing so, reflects one distinctive facet of the contemporary Iranian-American experience. He has shown consistently since 2002, including solo exhibitions at Marianne Boesky Gallery (New York), Galerie Frank Elbaz (Paris), I-20 Gallery (New York) and Half Gallery (New York), as well as group exhibitions at Gagosian Gallery (New York), Gavlak Projects (Palm Beach, FL), and Kunstmuseum Bern (Switzerland). The artist lives and works in New York.
