RAZIEH JAFARI born and grew up in Iran. She earned a BA in Industrial Design from University of Tehran, Iran. Currently, she is perusing her MFA in Studio Art at Stony Brook University, NY. In her art practice she is somewhere in between traditional and contemporary art. Jafari trained as a miniature artist in early ages and by the end of middle school she also had learned the craft of Persian calligraphy. Later at university she was introduced to modern art. Transferring Iranian painting to contemporary concepts as demonstrated by new media is an interesting issue she pursues. By using this technique, in her artwork she captures the uncertainties of what is reality, the disturbance of narrative as a coherent and orderly construct, the latent enveloping presence of haunting memories and their impact on the ongoing experience of life.
