Shilla Shakoori


SHILLA SHAKOORI is a contemporary artist from Tehran, Iran, currently based in Los Angeles. Shakoori's artistic output springs from an exploration of the synthesis between her native and adopted cultures. It was through the border-transcending influence of Rumi that Shakoori began to fully connect to her cultural heritage, though she also credits the influence of contemporary artists, such as LA painter Alexandra Grant.
