How a single concept is interpreted by two different artists with different backgrounds. How an idea is shaped by them in their artworks? How would the process of art-making be different if two artists decide to work closely to make the arts together?


These questions attracted us in a collaboration with Samira Zamani from the very first conversation we had in autumn 2012. We agreed on starting an experimental project and see how our abilities and creativity will guide us to make art despite the differences in our methods. We started to share our thoughts and drawings. The initial result was amazing, so we decided to continue this cooperation under a certain body of works that was called

Sang-Art projects.

Samira’s main art practice is handprint and she has used the Mezzotint technique for this body of work called Emerald.

This project has been shown in:
