Shabahang Tayyari


Shabahang Tayyari (b.1987, Khalkhal, Iran) is a Tehran-based artist and video game player. What he offers ends up appearing simultaneously both anxious and hopeful, Innocent and corrupt. His artistic strategies are witty and dark; they employ game tactics and clever manipulation of texts, ideas, images, and meaning, merging together the provocative and the delicate. Tayyari serves as director of Delgosha Gallery in Tehran.
