AboutOriginally from Iran, Banafsheh Bahrami brings the freshness and vibrancy of traditional Persian culture to the world of modern Western art.
It is the Persian vision melting into the forms of abstraction which are not European in source but originate mainly from New York. Her journey can be seen in a progressive sequence, she has explored form, shape, texture and technique.
This fusion of cultures is not the complete story because Banafsheh has done another astonishing turn-about and brought a new element of the East into her work. Having reached a high level of ânaturalistic' competence - essential to any truthful creativity - she has ventured into an exciting technique of inventiveness which is drawn from her studies into the practices and principles of the philosophy of Buddhism.
