Arina Shokouhi

My works behaves as a collection of pieces that complement and interact with one another in a lively collision of shape, colour and texture, offering alternative readings of tradition and non- Western culture through a celebration of tactility and colour. Creating surfaces that are gestural and layered show signs of the maker’s hand, and become inspiration points and material palettes for interior and spatial or fashion context.

I am driven to produce design that is evocative and sensitive to its original starting point. I am fascinated by developing a narrative, by deconstructing and then reconstructing both tangible and intangible experiences through making, allowing the narrative to grow and become something new,
