“Come with me to the deepest levels of my thoughts”- Tooran Zandieh
“I do not want to describe who I am, what I have done and what were my achievements in the past 69 years.I want to speak directly to your heart through my works. I want you to see me, my real self, in my works, read my life like a story from within the shapes and colours and connect with me to the deepest levels of my thoughts. I am presenting to you my past, my soul, my pains and sorrows and my happiness and hopes with these works. So come and join me in this journey…”
Tooran Zandieh graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in Fine Arts from Tehran University, Faculty of Fine Arts. Her experience includes over forty years of academic and professional work in the field of art education, specializing in the integration of art with child psychology. Zandieh is a successful educator, her students having held more than fifteen international titles in art festivals for work achieved under her direct guidance and supervision. She has been involved in various research projects along with several educational workshops for both children and their families on topics such as psychology, interpersonal skills and child-parent relationships.

Since 2002, she has started a new era in her artistic experiments with a unique style of collage. She is discovering a new way of expressing her feelings and ideas by creating modern pieces of art out of pages that we read and watch everyday, but she reinterprets them in a mysterious and magical way.
