Veyron Pax is an Iranian - American Artist, Filmmaker, Human rights activist currently based in Washington D.C.  

His work explores topics of immigration and identity politics through the digital manipulation of photography and video, where reality becomes distorted through an imagined and idealized lens.He connects the reality and imagination in a visual platform, reflecting his essence "Peace, Love, Understanding"

 

For Pax, the digital collages are a manifestation

of his journey and new life in the United States.

He distorts reflections in to celestial beings and

bodies are transported into a futuristic world.

They are fantasies, dreams of America

pre-immigration, and his continued belief in light

creates a world somwhere in between his own

ideal and the grim reality projected by others. he escaped from Iran when he was 19 years old, trying to find a new life without all the discriminations against him as a queer artist. The collection of “DIVISION” is 17 pieces of digital collages that Pax have made during his asylum from 2012 to 2017. He always dreamed about coming to America and live a free life thus he was always fantasizing the world outside of his oppressive country. The 17 images are a combination of his perspectives, visions with the reality that he faced when he got out of Iran. for each work Pax have mixed several photos of reality that he took with his fantasy which comes  from his Multimedia skills. creating a whole new vision based on reality and his thoughts. each work of art is only a series of 10 and that is why because Pax wants his audience and art supporters to be as close as possible to his collection “DIVISION” because of its personal nature. 
The “DIVISION” collection consists of 17 pieces of digital collages that he made during his asylum from 2012 to 2017. 

Pax always dreamed of coming to America and living a free life.  

OBSESSED, but OPPRESSED 

Pax solely combines his original, realistic photos with a fantasy twist creating his unique perspective.
