Meet the correspondents: ISFAHAN > Behzad Bagheri

"I was born in 1976 in Isfahan, Iran. As a child, I had no formal training in painting or drawing. I started when I went to university at the age of 17. This was when I took a leap into the world of art.

Graduated from the University of Art of Tehran in 2003, I have a M.A. in Architecture and have been lecturer in architecture at PNU University since 2005. I started using sketches and watercolors for my architecture designs before discovering that they could also be a way to communicate with others, as well as with myself.

Watercolor and sketching are a journey for me. They represent what I do, how I live and who I am. They are part of my life. I paint urban scenes and people's daily life. Everyday life inspires me to paint and painting inspires me to live and to discover the world that surrounds me.

I believe that any image that reveals a person’s inner associations and thoughts, and helps the observer to understand and relate to these, is worthy of being depicted. The beauty is in the variety and diversity of these personal experiences.



I'm glad to have the opportunity to reflect on my art work from different perspectives. It is always fascinating and enlightening to know what viewers think of your work, what touches them and how it makes them feel. I wish to learn more and more from other's comments and from other artist's works".
