Danesh Ashouri is an interdisciplinary artist based in Basel (Switzerland) and Freiburg (Germany).  He uses abstraction to express an objective representation of contemporary motifs. Ashouri aims to engage the viewer with simple esthetics while stressing provocative content.


After receiving a Ph.D. degree in biomedical microtechnology from IMTEK-Uni-Freiburg/Germany he started as a neurotechnologist at the center for Intelligent Machine-Brain Interfacing Technology (IMBIT) in Freiburg. As a neurotechnologist, he is involved in the research, design, and development of cutting-edge implantable devices for human applications.  These tiny devices will help patients with a range of severe impairments, including mental and movement disorders to better overcome these restraints.


This website tends to trigger dialogues by confronting Danesh's artistic world with his scientific background.
