Hadi Hazavei (born 1939, Iran) is known for his highly active career as an artist, scientist, educator, and scholar, extending across many decades, countries, and cultural contexts. His artistic practice has engaged a number of different media and aesthetic traditions, from Persian calligraphy, carpet-weaving, and folk art to the neo-traditionalism of Iran’s Saqqakhaneh school and Euro-American Abstract Expressionism.
Hazavei left Iran after nearly a decade of teaching to travel, spending time in Europe, South America, and the United States. He continued to make art throughout his travels, incorporating elements of diverse art historical conventions and cultural motifs into his innovative practice. A dedicated arts educator and scholar, he completed a PhD in Art Education at Columbia University in 1975, before serving as the Head of Art Education at Tehran’s Negarestan Museum between 1977–78. Hazavei has since settled in New York City, where he conducted post-doctoral research in Museum Studies at
New York University until 1989. He has authored numerous books on art and education; exhibited work and organized dozens of exhibitions internationally; and produced murals for towns throughout
the United States and in his early home in Aradan.


Shirin Gallery is a contemporary art gallery and platform for curatorial and educational activities, which seeks to foster international cultural exchange. Originally established in Tehran in 2005, the gallery opened a second space in Chelsea, New York in 2013. Through the presentation of works from emerging and established Iranian artists, Shirin Gallery is committed to the exhibition of works that push the boundaries of contemporary art, as well as international perceptions of the Middle East.
