Kiyomars Kiasat

1948
/
Iran

He began working in intellectual media of the time such as Ferdowsi, Negin and Ketab-e Jome as a drawer and cartoonist since 1973 .Kiasat has constantly continued painting and drawing ever since

Inevitably influenced by the superfluous images appeared on social media and the consumption of information, Chara Kontopoulou creates abstract paintings on large scale canvases, aiming to interact with the viewer and turn his passive vision into an exploring tool of experience.

As the paintings are consisted by alternate layers of resin and countless painting strokes, the overall artwork creates the illusion of a 3D painting. Due to the nature of the medium, the outcome is a shiny and reflective surface, the aim of which is to mirror the viewer and make him part of the artwork.

As an emerging artist, Chara participated in group exhibitions in United Kingdom, Greece and Cyprus. She also volunteers in museums and charities and organizes creative workshops with the purpose to engage people with arts. She currently lives and works in Manchester, UK.
