MAZDAK SHADKAM

Mazdak is an Iranian artist and engineer residing in the United State. He was born in Tehran, the capital of Iran. As a self trained photographer, he started his art practice in 2005 and did merely photography until 2012 when he started his Masters degree in studio arts at Washington State University. Since then, he has been exploring sculpture, video and installation art beside photography, sometimes in the form of combining different mediums to shape a single conceptual entity or switching between 2D and 3D based on the concept demand. Mazdak is mainly focused on the ideas that refer to Nostalgia, Home as a global phenomena, Personal Places and Human Belongings as things that define us in particular ways, specifically in our daily life.​
