Asal Peirovi’s practice explores the ambiguities of myth and imagination. In her unstretched paintings, she interlaces elements of nature and architecture derived from her own personal memories and lived experiences. Her fragmented perspectives and layered forms—including mountains, bridges, vegetation, and abandoned structures—allude to the tradition of Persian miniature paintings and present simultaneous narratives that poetically unfold across both time and space.
Asal Peirovi (b.1985, Sari, Mazandaran, Iran) lives and works in Tehran, Iran.
