Nodjoumi was a young artist in Tehran during the 1979 revolution. He was educated both at Tehran University and the City College of New York. Can you imagine the contrast in those years of the young artist's life? Educated in the Shah's Iran, further educated in New York in the 70s and then a return to the Iranian Revolution. It is not hard to imagine why his work remains political in nature to this day. He currently lives in Brooklyn.
Genadry is a Dartmouth graduate who followed that with a year as a research fellow at American University in Beirut. Later she received an MFA at the Slade School of Fine Art in London. The work is often what I would call abstraction with a dash of reality (the example at the bottom of the page has more reality than abstraction perhaps). Often her work is the sort that seems more abstract the further you are from it with the real bits becoming apparent close up.
