ZYNB

My work embodies a point of convergence between three continents and multiple visual languages, guided by a dedication to exploring the commonalities between marginalized communities and honoring ancestral knowledge. As a multidisciplinary transcontinental Iranian painter and muralist who has lived and worked in the Middle East as well as both North and South America, I am always interested in multiplicity. Complexity. Intersections. I look to our collective memory for solutions to modern challenges and struggles. I am interested in themes such as memory, (im)migration, water, healing, textiles, trauma, and genealogy.

I am passionately dedicated to advancing the narratives of diverse communities whose stories and needs have historically been marginalized and to connect these expressions with the unique ecologies of our planet. As a public artist, I deeply believe in the power of murals in particular, not only as a democratically accessible art form, but also as a means of rewriting narratives – so that the communal interaction that is implied in the creation of public art is an expression of transformative social and cultural intervention.
