Women Redefine Strength by artist Afarin Sajedi

“Painting is the silence of thought and the music of sight.”
― Orhan Pamuk

Painting is silent poetry, painting is a faith of life. Some times painting is someones life. Iranian artist Afarin Sajedi has created a unique style of painting. She was born in 1979 in Shiraz, she has received a degree in Graphic Designing. Afarin is a strong and expressive painter. The paintings are mostly of women, taking on different faces, thrust into various roles, merging into animals, objects, and each other in a gruesome but beautiful way.

The artist portrays powerful, alien-like women in pain, suffering and distress. Even though the paintings are colorful and visually interesting, some of them feel uncomfortable and uneasy. Her subjects are unapologetic shown in joy, in discomfort, and in physical pain, viscerally shining a light onto the universal turmoil and complexity of human experience. The use of  small brushstrokes make her paintings that much more lively.
