Group Description

A1one (aka Tahna), Iranian

Europe-based graffiti artist A1one was one of the first to put spray can to wall to express his artistic vision in the Middle East. He began dabbling in his form of “spray scribble” on the streets of Tehran in 1995—long before some of his peers were even born. He experimented and explored versatile artistic media and subjects, ranging from stencils to calligraphic-based pieces as well as a series of characters he referred to as Urban Primitives. In 2003, it wa evident that street art was his artistic form of communication, and he pushed the boundaries of his art all over his city’s walls. Sadly his boundary pushing caught the eye of the authorities who were none too keen on this new form of artistic expression. A1one was subsequently kidnapped by Iranian plainclothes intelligence service guards and interrogated for a couple of days. Upon being freed, A1one had no other choice but to resort to a life in exile in Europe. A1one still pushes the boundaries and steadfastly shuns the current authority-backed urban fine art mural scene burgeoning in the Middle East, which he feels “marginalizes real Graffiti artists.” While you can find his work in his motherland, Iran, A1one has also left his mark in many other countries, such as India, Australia, Italy, Germany, France, Czech and Cuba.
