Amin Shojaei
Multidisciplinary Artist

The environmental Artist and the gardener both can be connection maker within their surroundings. Gardener weaves a resilient natural web of biologic connections within boundary of the garden to nourish life.
My approach in art is to find some critical miss connections and repair them to makes changes on ecosystem and the social brain. I work on plant based bio-materials as an environmental solution in my fabrication laboratory.
Design of materials, drawings or installations, have same process for me which is observation, representation or making a medium for interconnection of life layers. I try to be a pragmatic artist via superposition of mediums and materials to help environment as a healer or protector.

Born in 1986 Amin Shojaei is a multidisciplinary scienceartist who investigates the damaged net of life and how it may be connected tohuman being and his life. He has an ongoing project to plant 10 million treesin Hyrcania and Zagros forests ,He also manages and works in his lab to produce Biomaterials for different aspects of design and packaging.

In One of his set of works he studies trees and its leavesas a medium, he had made installations in “villefranche sur saone” in France andRishe 29 gallery and studied tree as a medium in which the air could flow ,Treeare considered as an organism which can connect the empty space to thematerial.
