Sara Ghalandari is an Iranian-Austrian artist born in 1987. Her artistic passion lies in exploring human relationships within space and the reuse of materials. She obtained her Bachelor's degree in Textile Art from Tehran Art University and pursued a Master's degree in Site-Specific Art from the University of Applied Arts in Vienna.
As an artist, Sara draws inspiration from mythology, symbols, and the unconscious mind, and she possesses a worldview that centers around accepting temporality and imperfection. Her ultimate goal is to create a new symbol system with broad human relevance in her artwork.
Currently based in Vienna, Sara works as a freelance artist. In 2022, she was honored to receive the Vanessa Preger McGillivray Award from the University of Applied Arts and the City of Vienna for her Diploma Project. Additionally, she has been awarded a Working Grant from the same institution and city for the 2022-2023 academic year to continue pursuing her artistic endeavors.
