Born in Tehran, 1974, Sasan Nasernia began his career primarily as a calligrapher and typography artist . Exploring different avenues in Persian and Arabic classical and modern calligraphy, he has since expanded his practice to include painting, print, digital work and installation. Nasernia, who has a BFA from Azad Art University of Tehran; explores a myriad of themes in his practice. He is broadly interested in playing with the tension between two opposing primordial elements of order and chaos.
