Born in: Middle East

Maryam Ashkanian is an Iranian artist who gained recognition early in her career for her paintings and sculptures. Recently, the artist's oeuvre has expanded to incorporate more playful - and effective - practices. Her wonderfully original yet instantly recognizable "Sleep Series" features sleeping people embroidered onto handmade pillows. The series is yet another step in the artist's endeavor to sort through the depthless field of dreams. Ashkanian has had two solo exhibitions in the Homa Art Gallery, Iran, and group exhibitions in Athens, Brussels, and Switzerland.
