Samimi Mofakham’s and Rafiee’s works complement each other in their quest for truth behind the violence, propaganda and patriarchy that exist in the Middle East. Having endured revolution, war and multiple social movements in their young lives, the works of Samimi Mofakham and Rafiee reflect a fragment of their own experiences and serve as mirrors of their external realities.

Tarlan Rafiee (b. 1980, Tehran) started printmaking in 2004 and since then has worked as a visual artist/printmaker, participated in more than 30 group shows and held 4 solo exhibitions in Iran and abroad. She now works as a tutor in printmaking in her own studio and other art institutes.

Yashar Samimi Mofakham (b. 1979, Tehran) lives and works between Tehran and London.He is mostly known as a printmaker and runs his own printmaking studio in Tehran with his colleague and partner, Tarlan Rafiee. He has had a number of solo and group exhibitions in Iran and internationally. Samimi Mofakham also writes extensively on contemporary art and has curated several shows.
