OVERVIEW
Leili is a Multidisciplinary artist working across a variety of media, including painting, sculpture, tapestry, and digital graphics. In their works, they draw upon Persian Miniatures, Zoroastrian iconography, Islamic architecture, meme culture and queer histories. Using a saturated palette, and forcing perspective to defy the laws of physics, they combine these references with personal subject matter to create vivid alternate realities. Sacred architecture drawn from sites of spiritual significance and motifs from antique Persian rugs are woven with signifiers of their community to create dreamscapes that invite the viewer to celebrate the intersections of their various identities.
