My name is Sevda Khatamian. I was born in the summer of 89. My family was already living in Tehran when I joined them. Although there were all kinds of cousins and aunts and uncles in the family, it was mostly the four of us hanging out together. My father, Amin, used to run his own business and my mother, Zarifeh, worked in a hospital. Later, she became a lawyer. My older brother, Soheil, moved to Turkey when he was 17. So, I decided to go abroad too.
I’ve started my art practices since 2009, studying graphic design and later working as a designer. My genuine work has begun since 2013, generating ideas and developing projects in different mediums. After living in different parts of Turkey for eight years, I am now visiting different countries as an artist in residence, and I’m traveling without a home; creativity dawns as I move along with the road.
