Amin Montazeri (b. 1992, Tehran, Iran) creates elaborate illustrative paintings and drawings, featured detailed contemporary and universal readings of actual and mythological history. His allegorical approach and his sarcastic tone is an attribute of the development process of his themes, which involve human memory and social consciousness. Amin's delicate technique draws inspiration from Persian Miniature painting. The illustrative nature of his drawings are counteracted by intricacies which give the works a layer of texturized abstraction.
