Faramarz Mokhtarpour Biography

Dr Faramarz Mokhtarpour was born in Mashhad, Iran in 1964 in a family who loved art and culture. He was interested in painting since early childhood, drawing with perception from what he saw around him. He gradually experienced working with watercolour and gouache.

Dr Mokhtarpour's particular interest in nature is reflected in many of his works where perspectives of nature's beauty could be seen.  His painting style is realism with tendencies to impressionism and sometimes surrealism. His essence of seeking peace and beauty in nature and years of experience plays a significant role in the creation of his works.
