Lohrasb Bayat was born in 1990 Tehran, Iran
Lohrasb Bayat has used his own staged photographs, images from news websites, newspapers and other media, as bases for his paintings. His works focus on the relationship
between the guard and the prisoner, describing it as a “close relationship”. Lohrasb Bayat has put the characters in a “domestic” atmosphere where they are sometimes wearing
casual clothing. He has also staged himself both as the dominant and the dominated, playing on ideas of violence, perspective, judgement and ideology. Lohrasb Bayat’s works
show a study into the notorious micro-culture of terrorists in today’s historical context.
