Behzad Bagheri, Iran
Behzad Bagheri qualified from Tehran University of Art with a Master’s Degree in Architecture.
When he first started painting, he adopted watercolors and sketches for the purposes of his initial architecture designs. Aesthetics soon took over the functional side and he found himself painting for artistic purposes rather than functional, architectural purposes.
His work was becoming a means for him to connect with himself and his surroundings and share these impressions with others. It became a way to communicate with others. Since the transformation of his work from design to art, he has participated in several solo and group exhibitions in Iran and overseas.
For the past ten years he has been teaching art and architecture. He is experienced in Islamic art and architecture, applied geometry, perspective geometry, painting and drawing with watercolor, pencil, graphite and charcoal.
