Profile: Pouran Jinchi


Pouran Jinchi’s profile by Ladan Akbarnia in the current issue of Canvas, the premier art and culture magazine published in Dubai.


With a diverse artistic repertoire that includes works in a variety of media and sizes, including paintings, sculptures and video installations, Pouran Jinchi is very much a product of the modern age. Yet much of her inspiration is drawn from the ancient traditions of her Iranian heritage, serving to underline the complexity of Diasporic art and highlight the enduring power of identity and belonging….. What gives Jinchi’s work her signature style is the way she manages to synthesize historical and cultural strands and imbue them with a highly personal skill and character.
