“My ultimate goal is to have the viewer feel a sense of familiarity with the work...a sense of having experienced this before. I believe this feeling of arises from both the collective unconscious and a mystical center we all share…”
Dr. Aziz Anzabi, originally from Iran and based in London, UK, focuses his art on sculpture and painting with the main themes being myths and rituals. Exploring these aspects and aiming for an unconscious emotional state within the viewer, Anzabi's art takes form in both figurative and abstract styles. “My ultimate goal is to have the viewer feeling a sense of familiarity with the work; a sense of having experienced this before.” He uses new continuity to potential collections of art to bring together a new concept originated from Iran.
Aziz Anzabi's art describes a fantasy that shelters the individual in order to lead him throughout life. With strong surreal influences, he creates a universe proclaiming harmony. Anzabi's work has been displayed and purchased worldwide, in UK, USA, Spain, Italy and Dubai. In addition, his works have appeared on National Stamps. He has written film scripts in the Middle East. Dr. Aziz Anzabi is also an academic, who also has written and produced books on the subjects of art and mathematics, being previously a professor at Tehran University.
