Shamiran Istifan

Shamiran Istifan is a visual artist raised and based in Switzerland working with mixed media. Her first motivation to tell stories through visual art originated from growing up in a so-called cultural enclave of an ethnic minority where a two-worlds-system was formed for her and her generation. Her practice focuses on the different layers of social dynamics and draws through her engagement in her researches, translation and storytelling for media platforms which eventually led her to her Master studies at the Zurich University of Arts, along with her demand for an interplay of social content and free aesthetics on the institutional art field.
