Athena Jahantigh

"Athena Jahantigh's animal sculptures carry on their arched backs an immense iconographic heritage linking them to the cave art of her native Persia; inspiration both emotional and nostalgic for this artist living and working since 2003 in France, but who is getting married perfectly with its other great formal source, cave painting. The result is small wonders of hieratic and callipygian animals, with strong and sensual forms endowed with a particularly contemporary sculptural presence. These are contemporary sculptures with deep roots. " Nigel atkins

Athena obtained her doctorate in Plastic Arts at the University of Panthéon Sorbonne.
