Ashkahn trăieşte în Los Angeles. În studio-ul său, el creează obiecte cu care să te mândreşti când le porţi, (cum ar fi o şapcă inscripționată cu loser), dar, mai ales, obiecte care spun ceva despre tine și despre oricine altcineva: tired, blah blah blah, asshole, without beer life is hell. Ashkahn Shahparnia face bine ce face: mai exact, manufacturing boredom.
