Born in 1964 to a family that soon understood and supported his talent for arts, Dr Faramarz Mokhtarpour began his painting experience with watercolour and gouache, winning a nation-wide art contest before starting with oil paints and later pastels at the age of 15.
After graduating from Mashhad University of Medical Sciences in 1989, he sought to use every opportunity to indulge in arts, parallel to his medical career, and created some of his finest paintings while gaining experience. Guided by contemporary masters, the help of art textbooks and use of nature.
