BEHNAZ HOUSHMANDI

Once upon a time, storytellers followed a predictable arc with a beginning, a middle and an ending, but Iranian visual artist and graphic designer Behnaz Houshmandi is not your everyday storyteller. Born and raised in Teheran, Behnaz’s paintings are multidimensional works of art inspired by Persian culture, from traditional miniature paintings to epic volumes of poetry. Seeped in symbolism, with her colorful and abstract visual language she seamlessly weaves together stories to create worlds with depth you could spend hours exploring. And perhaps more importantly she invites you as the viewer to see within her worlds your very own narrative.
