Elham Sagharchi is a mixed-media artist based in Los Angeles, with more than 25 years of painting experiences. Her work is intimate and at the same time explores greater feminine issues. She examines the interactions and conflicts between a woman and her surroundings. Her pieces make use of materials from the domestic sphere such as cloth. She often juxtaposes these elements with material from work and industry such as rebar and ceramic tiles. These are then interwoven through the traditional medium of oil on canvas and create unique textures.
Since 1992, her works have been exhibited in several shows in Tehran, Iran, including The Golestan Gallery, the British Embassy, Azad Gallery, etc. After moving her base to California, she was exhibited at both Santa Monica Art Studios and Arena1 Gallery. She also worked as a graphic artist in various magazines and newspapers before. Elham studied painting at The Islamic Azad University in Tehran.
