You Are Valid


Arezou Ramezani

"This animated ink painting is dedicated to Mental Health Awareness. We all go through some dark times in our lives, no matter what you are going through, you have the right to feel how you feel. Emotional validation is to acknowledge your feelings and trying to learn, understand, express and more importantly to accept them the way they are. I love to express and evoke emotions in my ink paintings. You are valid and you matter."


Having pursued two masters in Animation, Arezou loves to use different mediums. She believes sharing emotions is essential that’s why she investigates the human's rawest feelings through her art where she conveys an emotion and evokes a feeling to the audience.


In her ink paintings, she gets inspired by music and humans where she expresses herself by drawing figures and portraits through hatched black ink lines that are in juxtaposition of fluid colourful inks. She believes humans go through common experiences and art is the language we all understand and that's why in her art she tries to connect to the deeper layers of inner feelings of the audience and hopes they resonate with them.


So far, she has made two experimental animations which have been exhibited in events. Besides her artistic career, she is hosting and producing a bilingual podcast as a passion project where she interviews well-known professionals and creative minds in the animation and art industry.
