Born in 1983 in Iran, Shahrzad Changalvaee received a BA in Graphic Design from the Faculty of Fine Arts at Tehran University. She uses typography as her medium to explore socio-political themes heavily influenced by her Persian heritage. Her explicative use of the Farsi language and its poetry creates graphic and dynamic imagery, which is captivating regardless of one’s knowledge of the language or culture.
