Navid Sinaki is an artist and writer from Tehran who currently lives in Los Angeles, California. His work entwines mythology with outdated digital media, including early aughts-style web pages, DVD menus, and diaristic text that falls somewhere between fiction and nonfiction. Sinaki’s work has screened at museums and art houses around the world, including the Modern Museum in Stockholm, Lincoln Center, British Film Institute, REDCAT, and Cineteca Nacional in Mexico. His debut novel Medusa of the Roses will be released by Grove Atlantic in 2024.
Sinaki is an Artist-in-Residence at the Shangri La Museum of Islamic Art, Culture & Design in 2023.
