Hossein Edalatkhah
( b. 1979 - Tehran, Iran )

Painter, Sculptor, Art Performer


Hossein Edalatkhah combines Social, Political, Historical, Sexual, and Religious themes. In his works, traditional Persian symbols, materials, and figures, often melt into each other in phallic forms, and symbolize the cultural “erection“ Edalatkhah is concerned with. The phallic obsession in his works serves as a critique of the means of representation and meaning-construction of it’s object of criticism. His unique portrayal of queer symbols, Feminism, gender roles, and his objection to male dominance in society can be found throughout his paintings. He lives and works in New York.
