Sepand Danesh Iranian, b. 1984

Sepand Danesh (b. 1984, Tehran, Iran) is a graduate of École Nationale Supérieure des Beaux-Arts in Paris, where he studied under the supervision of Giuseppe Penone and Philippe Cognée. 

Works of Sepand Danesh stand at the crossroads of art and technology. He looks at the world through a pixelated filter – elements and figures in his paintings are made of squares/cubes in an Euclidian geometry of surfaces. These paintings start in the corner of a space with no ceiling or floor. A vertical shelf where various elements and figures make a show is suspended between perpendicular lines. He uses drawing, painting, and workshops to burst ideas about the dynamic of the Hub. His paintings represent the optical illusion of an inside corner (as the metaphor of impediment) without a floor or ceiling, which shelters his intimate and the world's broader memory.
