Raha Rastifard is an Iranian-German artist who today resides in Stockholm. Her work ranges from photography to video, drawing, installations and printmaking. It always stems from her personal experiences, and is largely autobiographical. In her highly lyrical art, she creates works full of transcultural, poetic and historical art references. The process often resembles diaries where reality, dreams and fantasies intertwine.
Raha Rastifard has a Bachelor of Fine art from the National University of Art in Tehran and a Master’s degree in European and Islamic Art History and Iranian Studies from the Freie Universität in Berlin. She has exhibited around Europe and in Iran, but also, among others, in the US, Japan and China.
In the series "The Truth has Aesthetics" Raha Rastifard has created new patterns inspired by ancient Persian geometrical patterns, which are shown as architectural space.
