Azita Panahpour

Azita Panahpour (born in Tehran) is a contemporary abstract artist living in New York.

In her Shattered Poem paintings, she explores feelings of displacement, loss, and identity, by creating a dynamic gestural vocabulary drawn from the Farsi alphabet. The images—set in distressed, otherworldly backgrounds—dance, fall, intertwine, and emerge with a deep emotional statement that transcends the initial connection to the written word. The Shattered Poems are a collision of past and present, culture and art, an individual depiction of a universal sentiment.

 A multi-disciplinary artist, Azita’s works are in many private collections and have been selected for exhibits including: The Other Art Fair New York 2017, 2018; AD ART SHOW at Sotheby’s 2018 and in the Oculus 2020, 2021; The Other Art Fair Los Angeles 2020 Online; and The Other Art Fair Los Angeles Fall 2021.
