About

BIOGRAPHY

Hailing from a maternal family with strong roots in music, Shady Eshghi was predisposed to pursuing the arts. Graduating from Alzahra University of Tehran in 1994, she relocated to Miami in 2006, receiving her Master of Fine Arts degree in Visual Arts in 2009. Upon graduation she was selected for the Art Center/South Florida artist residency, and while holding her tenure as a resident artist, she was honored with the prestigious "Extraordinary Ability in the Arts" in 2010. 


ARTIST STATEMENT

As an Iranian immigrant growing up before the revolution, from spending formative years in a secular international school exposed to various world cultures; to experiencing revolution and war; I have learned to navigate my life in imagined in-between spaces. Art acts as a stable nexus synthesizing my diametric worlds: secular and religious, Iranian and American; public and private, east and west.
