Shaghayegh Saeedi was born in 1976 in Tehran and currently lives in the Netherlands.
She started her journey in painting under the guidance of Asanlou and has participated
in various courses in the fields of painting and photography. She is a multimedia artist
who does not confine herself to a single medium but rather utilizes different mediums
such as painting, printing, and photography to depict her unknown world. She
showcases the essence of painting and the moment by combining painterly spaces in
her photographs or frozen paintings.
Her academic background is in chemical engineering, and she has explored various fields
in order to merge her artistic quest with the enigmatic world through diverse materials.
“Painting provided a safe and peaceful haven for me since childhood, to escape from
whatever was frightening. Depicting the world has always been a source of joy for me, a
joy that has remained from my childhood. It’s like a window through which I plunge my
head to see the world the way I desire. Amidst this back and forth between different
worlds, I became acquainted with the camera, which, like a brush and color, provides
me with the ability to create other worlds. The bewilderment of the mysterious world,
the sense of discovering its unknowns, and the constant journey between dreams and
reality are the achievements of the artistic talents of painting and photography that
accompany me always.”
