21.12.11



Hkan Honavar born in Iran, works and lives in The Netherlands, graduated with a BFA Illustration and as a Graphic Designer. His aesthetic dissection has an intriguing macabre nature, which opens the images to interpretation.
Vanitas, one of his last works is an artistic collaboration with stylist Kathi Kauder and photographer Sabrina Theissen. For these collages Ashkan Honarvar used Vanitas symbols in a search for the equilibrium between life and death. The woman depicted features different animal eyes - remnants of the instincts that guide people under extreme circumstances.
