Hossein Ghaemi uses secrecy, the unconscious, theatricality and mysticism to create surreal scenarios through real and imagined characters. Performance, sound, video and painting are at the core of his practice.
Ghaemi holds a Bachelor of Visual Arts (Honours) and is currently undertaking a Master of Fine Arts at Sydney College of the Arts. Significantly, Ghaemi was selected for Primavera 2014: Young Australian Artists at the Museum of Contemporary Art Australia. Ghaemi is represented by The Commercial, Sydney.
