Negin Sharifzadeh, born in Tehran, Iran, is a multi-disciplinary artist based in New York.
Growing up in Iran in the wake of revolution, Negin is fascinated by the interplay of different natural, emotional, and political systems. She started working in animation and new media since her move to New York in 2010. Her animation style grows out her earlier sculptural and performing arts practices. The props are made by hand, then captured in-camera, then digitally edited and sound designed. Her stories are inspired by familial tales, poetry, and politics, which she translates into collective, surreal and mythic structures.
