Elham Shafaei

Born in 1362, Rasht, Iran


PhD & MA in Fine Arts- BA in Painting


I received my B.A Bachelor of Painting (Arts) in Science and Culture University, Tehran, Iran. In 2010 I moved to Malaysia where I obtained M.A (Fine Arts) in Papermaking and PhD (Fine Arts) in Painting that examined the role of melancholia in creative life through studio research as well as a written dissertation. In 2016 I relocated to Sharjah, UAE, where I currently reside and pursue my studio practice.
