Tahereh Samadi Tari

Tahereh Samadi Tari

She was born in 1981, Tehran, Iran. Tahereh Samadi Tari studied B.A in Painting at Azad University and M.A in Painting, at Art University of Tehran. Her paintings, characterized by a muted palette, often depict solitary figures in ambiguous urban settings. She uses a hazy painterly style, and her compositions remind of photography and even cinematography. Her canvasses often border on a sort of mysterious geometric abstraction.
Tahereh has exhibited numerous times in Tehran, London and New York
