Taha Heydari

Taha Heydari, b. 1986 Tehran Iran.
Lives and works in Baltimore.
Heydari moved to Baltimore in 2014 to pursue his Master of Fine Arts at the Maryland Institute College of Art (MICA), completing his degree in Hoffberger School of Painting, in 2016. Since his graduation, he was granted a 3 years Artist Visa and has worked full time in his studio in Baltimore.
Pixelated broken tv images, caused by Iranian government satellite jamming, triggered Heydari’s fascination with the moment of glitch. He considers glitch as a visible instance of separation between what an image does, what it is made of, and how it appears to us. He uses acrylic and various palette knives, rollers, and airbrush to create complex, highly detailed surfaces where he can accentuate the significance of tools, material, and technology in the act of representation.
Heydari’s work has been showcased in solo exhibitions at the Southeastern Center for Contemporary Art, Winston-Salem, NC (2017) Haines Gallery, San Francisco, CA (2016-2018), Ethan Cohen Gallery, New York, NY (2015).
