Meghdad Lorpour (b. 1983, Shiraz, Iran) is a painter based in Tehran, Iran. Throughout his career, Meghdad’s subject matter has ranged from portraiture, to landscape and still life, and his analytical approach to every aspect of his work has constantly evolved. He begins with a multi-layered phase of research, which includes deep dives into related literature, travel, documentation, and recording oral histories, and continues by exploring his recollections of the research process as sketches and experiments in technique and representation.
