Siamak Filizadeh is an Iranian artist.
Filizadeh draws upon the rich literary and visual traditions of the Shāhnāma or Book of Kings as inspiration for his art works. Paintings include a blending of anachronistic and contemporary details alongside the mythical realm of Iran’s hero Rostam.
The Rostam 2 series consists of sixteen prints, most of which are in the form of digitally constructed images juxtaposing photography, illustration, and graphic design. They combine to create an implausible reality for the mythical hero Rostam. The series was acquired by the Los Angeles County Museum of Art in 2011.
