About

Arezou Ramezani is an Iranian visual artist and podcaster based in London, UK. She holds two masters degrees in Animation and has exhibited her work worldwide in over 35 exhibitions including Top 100 artists ARTSCLOUD in Seoul, The 17th Athens Digital Arts Festival and The 8th Fu:Bar Glitch Art Exhibition. She is utilising various mediums to express her artistic vision. Arezou’s work is focused on exploring raw human emotions, with a particular emphasis on conveying and evoking strong feelings in her audience.

Her ink paintings are inspired by music, personal experiences, and human emotions, and feature hatched black ink lines juxtaposed with fluid, colourful inks. Arezou believes that despite our differences, humans share common experiences and that art serves as a universal language that can connect us all. She strives to create art that connects with the audience on a deeper, emotional level and hopes that her work resonates with them.

Besides her artistic journey, Arezou possesses a rich background in public relations, communications, teaching assistance, and curatorial roles. These diverse experiences add depth to her artistic perspective, infusing her work with a tapestry of multidimensional insights.
