About the Artist:

Arash Shirinbab has managed to be a successful blend of an award-winning artist and Arabic-Persian calligrapher as well as art administrator, art curator, and entrepreneur for the past ten years. He has participated in over 70 exhibitions (over 10 solos) nationally and internationally in the U.S., Spain, Poland, Canada, Russia, France, Italy, and Iran; such as the Triton Museum of Art in California, the Kunsthaus-Berlin-Marbella Center in Spain, and the Saadabad Palace in Tehran and the Contemporary Museum of Calligraphy in Moscow.

Arash’s calligraphy and artworks with his personal painting style, Poem-Painting, have won several awards such as the 1st Place and Best of the Show Award for the 50 Shades of Gray competition by Focus Point & Shape Gallery 2014, Special Recognition Award for My Art international competition from Art Quench Magazine 2013, and a recent prestigious grant award as the leading artist and calligrapher from Creative Works Fund 2015.

Arash has moved from his home country, Iran, to the US in 2010 and in the course of a few years, has become a visible and active artist, calligrapher, and cultural producer in the San Francisco Bay Area, California. Along being the Council Member of the Friends of Calligraphy, Arash is serving as a Board of Director of Berkeley Art Center and as the Director of Ziya Art Center, an organization that leads the Calligraphies in Conversation annual exhibition.
