Soheila Sokhanvari is my newest artist fever. She conveys a specific type of radical, an altered way of thinking that sets her apart from the rest. I’ve encountered passion, energy, and a rare intellectual approach to her art. In her sphere of esthetic, she interconnects people, time and places. Tehran’s sex slaves of a bygone era have never been explored so intricately as subjects of art. Soheila continues her rise and never ceases to shape our minds. I look anxiously forward to the synergies she will bring to the art world again and again. I have picked out her newest work which fills all the gaps between my perception of what it was and what it is now.
