Paintings by Aazam Harati
December 6, 1999
Persian miniatures have been appreciated for centuries. But the work
of contemporary artists like Aazam Harati have a modern spin. These stylized
artistic interpretations of Persian and Islamic stories are extremely pleasing
to the eye. No wonder Harati's work was a crowd favorite during the recent
Evolving Perceptions art show in Washington DC.
Aazam Harati was born in 1967, in Tehran. Harati, who has a bachelors
degree in fine arts from Tehran University, has been painting since 1992.
She is inspired by classical Persian literature and religious stories from
the Koran. She currently works as a designer for Innovative Persian Rugs
and an illustrator for children books in Iran.
