Maryam Hashemi



I studied Graphic Design at Azad University in Tehran ,Iran.
while studying I developed a style which was identifiable by viewers.
I had my first solo exhibition in 2001 at Haft Samar gallery in Tehran and was selected for a group show by 10 Iranian female painters in Brussels on the same year . I had my last solo exhibition at Haft Samar on 2002 and moved to the UK shortly after hoping to start a career in Graphic Design but soon realised that I have very little interest in this field and explored different areas such as performance and theatre but currently my main focus is back on paintings.
I have been involved with many community art projects and cultural events such as Edinburgh Iranian Festival and Museum At Night events at The London Canal Museum and have been an exhibiting artist in UK and internationally.
