ABOUT ME

NILOUFAR KIAROSTAMI
Artist. Architect. Landscape Designer.

Born in 1989 in Tehran, Iran, is an architect and a self-taught intuitive artist. Art has always played an important role in her life. She started illustrating her imaginary characters when she was at an early age. Her artwork expresses her beliefs about the world and an impression of her feelings while creating them. Illustrating transversal characters and stories tangled within each other represents the wholeness of all creatures and human beings and how we are all connected even if we don’t realize it. After graduating with a Master of Architecture in Iran and working as a professional architect, She started her master's studies in Sustainable Architecture and Landscape Design at the Polytechnic University of Milan in 2019 and graduated with the highest score in April 2022. She uses different techniques and styles in her artworks which are all original and are affected by her life and beliefs since childhood. The process of creating art is the most interesting part of Kiarostami’s artworks. She has indeed doing art since she was a little kid, but she found her style in 2019 when she was 30. She started to do intuitive drawings based on the idea of Yin & Yang, which is a Chinese philosophical concept that describes how opposite or contrary forces may be complementary, interconnected, and interdependent in the natural world, and how they may give rise to each other as they interrelate to one another. Her first collection, called FreakLand is an ongoing collection of an infinite world of imaginary creatures and stories in each drawing. The so-called collection led her to call herself FreakLand Mamma which means the creator of FreakLand. She is always trying to express her thoughts and feelings about life and the universe by using symbolism such as eyes, which are the most important and visible ones through all her artworks; because the eyes are the door to the soul and it’s how she can show different human expressions and characters in her pieces. Till now she has announced 2 other collections called “Interconnected” and “Self-Expression Portraits”, each using different techniques and mediums.
