Amirhossein Bayani

Biography

Amirhossein Bayani (b. 1977, Tehran, Iran) is a painter, visual artist, and curator. He received a B.A. in painting from Tehran University School of Art in 2004, and an M.F.A. in Art Research from Tehran Azad University in 2008. He is a member of the Iranian Painters Society (IPS) and the founder and director of MERXOUT Projects. Bayani’s work explores critical politics, sociology, and philosophy as related to human existence and experience. His work, in particular, focuses on the colonization of his subjects by the politics of power, where acts of violence, sabotage, and tyranny are underhand deals, too artful to be covered by the mainstream and prestigious information channels.
