Nastaran Safaei was born in 1984 in Tehran, Iran. She was mostly self taught in her experience until attending Parviz Tanavoli’s workshops in 2006 focusing on the Bronze technique which resulted in her first solo sculpture exhibition at Assar art gallery. The successful show made her a member of the association of Iranian sculptors. The main inspiration for her work is inner explorations of femininity by using mundane objects to express her experiences. She is deeply inspired by the mythological archetypes of Jung and the psychological methods of self-realization and ancient Iranian myths. Social and cultural issues influence her work deeply. She is currently working on the concept of time and the sub-conscious, focusing on the therapeutic aspect of her work in regards to her own psychological healing in relation to herself and the exterior. She regularly uses the human form to convey her ideas.
