Arefeh Norouzi


A girl who fell in love with art

Arefeh Norouzi is an ambitious self-motivated abstract artist and calligraphist based in the middle east. She joined NFT space on April 2021 and never left since day 1. Her art has been celebrated and featured since then in many art exhibitions and major NFT/cryptocurrency events. Arefeh has also played a key role in educating Persian artists; helping them join NFT space and guiding them through their journey. Arefeh’s self-taught process combines layers of love and colors to create her imaginary worlds. By pouring her heart into her paintings, she evokes emotions and memories and reifies her stories into art.


My portfolio features a blend of both NFT and physical artworks, including one-of-a-kind digital pieces verified on the blockchain and traditional art available for purchase

Chaos inside

Despite what you might think, my skin is not rough; nor is it bulletproof. My skin is soft, and smooth, and easily scarred. I might look tough on the outside, but if you dig deep, you'll find a chaotic soul screaming inside... Words are much more stronger than bullets.


“I know what it’s like to lose. To feel so desperately that you’re right, yet to fail nonetheless. It’s frightening. But I ask you to what end? Dread it. Run from it. Destiny arrives all the same. And now it’s here. Or should I say, I am”


My resume showcases a diverse range of experience in both NFT and physical art, including creation, sales, and exhibitions of unique digital pieces and traditional artworks.
