Dastan is pleased to announce its first participation at Frieze Los Angeles 2022 with a presentation of works by Yousha Bashir and Hoda Kashiha.
Yousha Bashir (born in 1989, Manila, Philippines) is a multidisciplinary artist living in Tehran. He has a degree in Computer Graphics Design and a BA in visual arts from the University of Farhangian in Tehran. His work ranges from painting to sculpture to installation. Concepts such as construction/destruction, duality, and suspension are key elements that shape his works. One of his main preoccupations is Self and the definition of Self in an attempt to find the boundary between the outer/inner space. Therefore, the subject of his works is often the figures and abstract views of a utopian/dystopian city. Yousha's recent collection continues to explore his abstract vision. He discovers the relationship between digital and physical realm in painting. These paintings play with the idea of incorrect translation/production of a digital image to physical painting and the limitations and opportunities that each individual platform provides.
