Monir Shahroudi Farmanfarmayan

Born in Tehran in 1924, Monir Shahroudi Farmanfarmayan is one of the leading artists of contemporary Iranian art. The hallmarks of her work were formed in the late 60s and 70s and were based on her passion for Iranian heritage. Her work illustrates a commitment to traditional Persian techniques and ornamentation, combining mirror mosaics, Islamic geometric patterns and stained glass to create works that resonate both with traditional forms and with a more modernist aesthetic.
