The work of Morvaird K (b. 1982) seeks to unearth the social in daily life, even in the most banal circumstance. Street scenes, public places and culturally recognizable symbols are imbued with a sense of intimacy through their juxtaposition with images of everyday humanity, and in her subtle sense of framing. From visceral butcher scenes to sterile building facades, the pure grins of the young and innocent versus the lined faces of the old and wise, they are all consciously depicted amidst religious and advertising propaganda. Nothing escapes her eyes, captured in signature vibrant hues.

Morvarid K studied at the École des Beaux Arts in Bordeaux, France, and has exhibited in India, Australia, France and Singapore. She currently lives and works between France and Iran.
