Amir Nikravan

Amir Nikravan (b. 1983 in Los Angeles, California) is an artist living and working in Los Angeles.  His paintings are optical mirages that fuse painting, photography, and sculpture in a process that produces indexical veracity and illusionism. This results in completely flat images. Nikravan received his MFA in 2011 from the University of California, Irvine. His work has been included in several solo and group exhibitions in locations such as Various Small Fires in Los Angeles, California; Arndt Gallery in Singapore; Jonathan Viner Gallery in London, United Kingdom; Pepin Moore in Los Angeles, California.
