Nariman Farrokhi (b. 1986, Tehran, Iran) is a self-taught artist. He mixes what he observes with a hyperactive sense of imagination and rearrangement through the use of simple material and technique. Confined to using only written language and gestures as means of communication, Nariman Farrokhi has used actual texts in many of his past works. This approach has gradually caused him to develop his own visual alphabet, i.e. writing system, that appear like hieroglyphs.
