Omid Shalmani

Omid Shalmani

My name is Omid Shalmani. I was born on 14th February 1981 and I’m a visual artist and a photographer, based in Tehran, Iran.
I studied photography and Graphic design in University. I started my career in photography since 2012. My works have been exhibited in more than 20 Art exhibitions in Tehran such as Press Book, Fajr Art Festival and Tehran’s Expo…, In addition, one of my works has been selected and shown in a photography exhibition curated by SeeMe in New York City.
I used photomontage technique in my works until 2016 and after that, I got interested into stage photography.
My passion and concern is Love and Destruction and I imagine that all my artworks are about to express the emotional aspects of these issues with the quality that I have lived in.
