Danesh Ashouri is an interdisciplinary artist based in Basel (Switzerland) and Freiburg (Germany). After receiving a PhD degree in biomedical microtechnology from the University of Freiburg, he started as a neurotechnologist at the Center for Intelligent Machine-Brain Interface Technology (IMBIT). He is involved in research, design and development of cutting-edge implantable devices, which help patients suffering from severe impairments, like mental and movement disorders.


As an artist, Ashouri aims to engage the viewer with simple aesthetics while stressing provocative content. His works are strongly based on contemporary motifs with impact, what he refers to as RELEVANT ART. In 2017, Ashouri introduced the ArtTech series as a conceptual framework to merge his scientific background with his world of art.
