Neda Bahremand is an Iranian born artist. She left Iran and lived in Costa Rica in her teens before arriving in Australia as a young woman. Her art addresses connections between her Iranian heritage and her life in Australia as a settled migrant.
Neda believes her Iranian background and culture have had a profound influence on how she views the world. Her memories of childhood in Iran stay with her, like spirits both dark and light. As with many migrants, the puzzles of “what is home?” and “where do I belong?” are not yet resolved. Much of her art reflects these experiences.
Neda completed her Advanced Diploma of Visual Arts at NMTAFE, Perth in 2016. Since then she has been participating in group exhibitions and practising full time at her studio at Artsource in Fremantle, WA.
