Sara Irannejad is a QCA Fine Arts research candidate. Currently she is exploring diasporic identity and assistance of mythology through body projection, painting and installation. In 2010, Sara left her home country, Iran, in order to get away from the autocracy and censorship that has limited the art practitioners. She first resided in the US while studying Master of Studio Art at Boston’s School of Museum of Fine Art. In 2011, Irannejad was granted an Exceptional Artist scholarship award from this school. In 2012, She chose Australia as her new home and has been living in Brisbane as a practicing visual artist and designer since then. Irannejad has exhibited widely in group and solo exhibitions.
