Aziz Anzabi

“In this painting I tried to show a king fishing . The fishes represent people.The king has kept all the humans inside a invisible cage that only he can see not the fishes(humans)and is using them to get power and Abuse them by using money to control them.The invisibility of the cage represents that this has happened since a long time ago and it still carries on, it also shows that people are very attached and dependent on money and they would do almost anything for it.The people are not aware of the invisible cage around them .They are trapped and their lives depends on money and the king’s demands.This also shows that humans can fall into trap easily for money or demands of powerful people”   – Aziz Anzabi                          

Life

Mind’s eye is so powerful that it can visualize a lush green garden with flowing water just across

a rugged desert.

Helpless man can do nothing but to take refuge in fantasies, exploiting dreams of his mature mind to lead him to throughout his life.

Fantasies rapidly vanish into thin air.

My fantasy is an complete universe, that every humankind can use their humanity.

It is a wrong universe miscalculations about life right now, continually blaming myself for not sizing the day and for having to bid farewell to the departed one after the other.

From dawn of creation, mankind has proclaimed the harmony   “Look how clear water is falling down from between your fingers like the freedom that falls down from humankind fingers !”

In different periods of time art and corporate world have had a tight communication and a effective interaction on each other. In this work the antique Greek pottery is a symbol of the western and I have changed the symbol and meaning of the potter’s tale by replacing a coca-cola bottle between the two soldiers instead of the original image and the surprise looks of the soldiers for what they have found is incredibly odd in their own century. Under the pottery using a symbol of iranian miniature for representing the westerns and replacing the logo of coca-cola instead of the Iranian calligraphy I have tried to show the effect of the corporate world on art and culture .The deep effect of these corporate world on the life of people is shown using the ancient pottery and the crumpled paper containing the picture of a miniature.

Biography:

Aziz Anzabi, original from Iran and London based, focus his art in sculpture and painting. Anzabi’s art have as main concept myths and rituals. Exploring these aspects and aiming for an unconscious emotional state within the viewer, Anzabi art takes form in both figurative and abstract styles. ”My ultimate goal is to have the viewer feeling a sense of familiarity with the work, a sense of having experienced this before.”

He uses new continuity to potential collections of art to bring together a new concept originated from Iran. Aziz Anzabi’s art describes a fantasy that shelters the individual in order to lead him throughout life. With strong surreal influences, Anzabi creates a universe proclaiming harmony.

Anzabi work has been displayed and purchased worldwide, from UK, USA, Spain, Italy and Dubai. In addition, his work has appeared on National Stamps and has written film scripts in the Middle East. Aziz Anzabi is also an academic, who also has written and produced books on the subjects of art such as mathematics, being previously a professor at Tehran University.”

Statement:

My base technique to create artworks is using real life natural events to create artworks with images or words from an imaginary world. Throughout my art I clearly elaborated the disposition (changing the shape of an object), and morphing of objects. I have long been intrigued and fascinated by these concepts. In my sculptures and painting, both figurative and abstract, I employ these aspects of a collective unconscious to evoke an emotional state within the viewer. In my figurative work, my goal is to capture the myriad changing state of the human condition through subtle changes in facial countenance and body language. The end result shows how the inner condition is expressed by the outward form while also conveying a timeless quality to human emotion. In my abstract sculptures, I have recreated the numinous quality of subconsciously shared images, stories, and ceremonial rites. The sculptures, themselves, are composed of abstract forms that are covered with a rich, textured surface. The end result is a complex organic piece that evokes a sense of ancient artefacts, of ritualistic objects from some unknown culture, or of imagined landscapes. However, be it figurative or abstract, my ultimate goal is to have the viewer feel a sense of familiarity with the work…a sense of having experienced this before. I believe this feeling of arises from both the collective unconscious and a mystical centre we all share.
