My pen name is Zam Zadeh and I’m a storyteller and visual artist, Originally from Iran and based in Belgium/Brussels. I have a background in speculative narration (l’ERG, Brssels), and digital storytelling (Kask, Gent). I have exhibited projects in South Korea, Canada, Switzerland, Germany, and Belgium and been part of numerous book and zine fairs in different European cities.
My art practice has always had some sort of direct or indirect connection in my country's heritage, literature and history. I’m fascinated by Persian art and its philosophy which is based on the idea of friendship, love and appreciation of life. I enjoy reading and get inspired by work of other artists in the diaspora and also femenist writers and artists.
