by Firouzeh Razavi
Firouzeh (Fifi) Razavi was born in Iran. She is an essentially self-taught artist. Her works, which consist of Oil Paintings, Watercolors, and Charcoal Drawings, have been awarded many prizes in competition all over Iran. She now resides in California. In March, 1990, she was signally honored by being invited by the Vatican to come to Rome, Italy, to work upon the restoration of some of the oldest masterpiece paintings of Italy. Further information about her artwork can be found at


Firouzeh Razavi's novel Portrait of a Life is a true story that explores the impact of friendship. Prior to the 1979 Iranian Revolution, Azadeh moves to the United States. Azadeh is later offered a position restoring paintings at the Vatican in Rome due to her career as an artist. When she is unable to accept the position, Azadeh reflects on her friends and the impact they have had on her life, her art, and her mind. Though they were each born in different parts of the world and lived during different times, both endured harsh life circumstances. Azadeh witnesses the struggles within these friends as they grapple with their past and present situations. She ultimately realizes that achieving peace of mind is the key to happiness, whether one’s dreams have been fulfilled or not. An empowering story, vivid with self-exploration, philosophical conversation, and a surprising twist, Portrait of a Life will leave readers striving to attain peace of mind, self-worth, and the realization of happiness.

Fifi's paintings are etudes, works inspired by varieties of famous artists. Hence, 1000 different styles as you put it.

 The following is inspired by Picasso’s Demoiselles d’Avignon:







1000 different styles

Unbelievable, each picture seem to be of a different style. Are they are really all by one and the same artist, Firouzeh Razavi ? But I like each of them, really great arts.

From a technical standpoint, I found the color renditions in representational style portraits muddy, and overblended.  I don't see  life or vibrancy.

Some of the still lifes and abstracts were OK, but I fail to see originality and real art behind them.  The styles are all over the board, and even the most brilliant artists in history have a very limited style, and here, one person is doing so many.  I see a technician, not an artist. 

And when she signs her name to a painting, it is very uneven and does not look like from one with a steady hand.  The spacing and size of the letters, the directions of the line... does not look good. 


Additionally, I  like it when a person is confident enough to put up their picture when presenting their paintings.  Lastly, I don't know if in Italy, Fifi is a cute name or something, but it reminds me of a kitten's name.


Nice Paintings

I like these two galleries:

It is also important to have an actual photo of yourself so that folks see what the artist looks like.
