After her Bachelors at the Al Zahra University in Tehran, the young Iranian artist worked for six years as the assistant of the internationally known artist Reza Derakshani. Additionally, Samira Hodaei participated in several group exhibitions in Tehran.

As an “Artist in Residence” at the AB Gallery she received the opportunity to work in a new environment, thousands of kilometers away from her own country. The series of work, that have their origin in Iran, were significantly developed and completed, during her stay. The new canvas works are witnesses of the artist’s stay in Europe and create a bridge between Switzerland and Iran in an artistic way.
