The works of Shohreh Mehran are hyper-realistic. Her choice of themes, the way she depicts them, and her careful use of colors make her paintings unique. Born in 1957 in Tehran, Shohreh has a B.A in Graphic Design from Tehran University of Art. Her latest solo exhibition was held in Tehran’s “Etemaad” Gallery in autumn 2014. She has exhibited widely in Iran and her work has also been shown in group shows in UAE, Qatar, USA, UK and Germany. Her paintings often communicate by absence rather than presence, her images capture and distill contemporary Iranian scenes and people.
