Born and educated in Tehran, Iran, Behnaz Sohrabian discovered her love of art, freedom and creative expression as a small child, developed a passion for painting and began her professional art career at the age of 10.
Behnaz has earned a B.S. in applied chemistry, a B.A. in painting and a Masters of Arts in art studies. After completing her Master’s degree she immigrated to the United States in 2010 and has been living in Oklahoma ever since.
My aim is to paint simply. Apply east brush strokes. Emphasize light and shadow and the dynamics between the subject and the background. I choose varied subject matter to convey the concept of feminist with simplicity, natural beauty and inspiration. Women, our beloved animals, flowers and Mother Earth symbolize the essential power of creation in our world. They interact with an intentionally sensuous dance that expresses the process of fertility and reproduction, strength and compassion. My art explores the drama, texture and wonder of this creative process.
