Katayoun Dowlatshahi

Katayoun Dowlatshahi graduated in Fine Art Printmaking from Edinburgh. Received an MA in European Art from Barcelona and Winchester. Katayoun was awarded a Doctorate (PhD) in Drawing and Photography from The University of Gloucestershire with a specialism in Carbon Photography (a 19th century photographic process). Since 1995 she has lectured in a number of universities as well developing her practice as a full-time professional artist. In more recent years she has worked with children within school settings.

She has been awarded several national and international residencies, fellowships and has continued to exhibit regularly, both in the UK and abroad.

Katayoun Dowlatshahi works in fine print, analogue/digital photography, drawing and architectural glass, using combinations of these in her work. She creates site responsive works that link landscapes with memory and place. Her major achievements are in public art and in her unique constructed photographic artworks, some of which have been acquired for private collections.

One of Katayoun’s skills is her ability to collaborate with urban design teams on significant regeneration projects across the UK, to integrate art into the fabric of new developments and heritage sites. Placemaking is at the heart of her practice.

We were so keen to launch our Artist Directory we have decided to launch the first phase in advance of the costing and portfolio generation section.

In this first phase we have included a diverse selection of artists we collaborate with.

Over the coming months this selection will continue to grow eventually to include all of our artists.

In the near future our artwork selection, frame visualisation and costing database will come on-line.

This will allow the selection of artworks and frames, see a visualisation of the framed artwork and include this in a portfolio for purchase.

If you would like further information about this artist or their available artworks please complete this form and we will get back to you as soon as we can.
