Exhibitions running from 24 April-27 JuneSpeaker for this talk is: Damon AMB
arrived in Australia in 2013 as an asylum seeker. He was transferred and kept in two detentions before being granted a protection visa. Growing up and being an artist in Iran positioned him in an endless juxtaposition of the historical and cultural grandeur of his country against the backdrop of excessive socio political repression and censorship by the current regime. Damon
resorts to abstract and conceptual style to fully embrace his works. His work could at times be deeply political, philosophical, autobiographical and sometimes whimsical. Through the lens of his camera, Damon
captures the beauty of natural landscapes, the ingenious nature of human beings, the extraordinaries of urban street life, the constrictive aspects of society and the fantasy elements of his life’s journey. He cleverly incorporates techniques of photography, digital painting, collage, and photomontage to illustrate memorable portraits, places and experiences. Damon
has been actively involved in various art projects and held exhibitions in galleries in Iran, Australia and England.
