Visual Artist


Afshan Daneshvar (b 1972) is a Dubai-based Iranian visual artist. She has worked in various fields of design.

Mentored in Persian calligraphy by her father, she has used it in her designs and artistic practice since 2004.

Her meditative work is based on repetition, inspired by siah mashgh in Persian. In siah mashgh words and letters are repeated regardless of meaning for the sake of perfection.

She seeks to replicate the meaning behind siah mashgh. In her recent works since 2015, she explores working with paper. There is an intensity and minimal approach to her work.
