Nazanin Amiri Meers studied Textile Design and Print [Iran, 2008] and received her MA in Design Technology [Malaysia, 2009]. Immigrating to the United States in 2014 and earning an MFA at the University of Kansas in Fiber Arts was a turning point in her artistic life. Nazanin is currently an artist in residence in the Charlotte Street Foundation [Kansas City, Kansas] making large scale installations, combining various techniques and media to address the importance of privacy and quietude in public spaces. Iranian architecture influenced by Islamic philosophy and decorative patterns are endless sources of inspiration for her work.
Nazanin’s artwork has been exhibited internationally in venues such as the Surface Design Association (Portland, CA), Art League of Lincoln (Lincoln, CA), University of Kansas, UITM gallery (Malaysia), and Artin gallery (Mashad, Iran).
