Ghazal Khatibi (b. 1984 Kermanshah) received her master’s degree in painting from the Alzahra University in 2011 and currently lives and works in Tehran. She has held five solo exhibitions and has been presented nationally and internationally in various group exhibitions. Through a constant gaze in the creation process, Ghazal Khatibi evokes a sense of strangeness from the forms in her artworks: shapes, textures and stains are detached from their original background and embodied as a strange and unfamiliar creature; they form an unpredictable organic structure and in combination with geometric elements, they turn into a systematic structure.
