Davood Zandian, the Iranian-Norwegian contemporary painter was born in 1953 in Tehran. He learned painting as young as ten, with coffee-house traditional painting masters. In the following years, he turned it into his main profession and, by the end of the 1970s, had become proficient in various genres including traditional Iranian religious painting. His enthusiasm for experimentations in the field of image-making led him to a few cinematic experiences as well. He immigrated to Norway in 1986, but the subject of his paintings in recent years has remained largely related to Iran. (Iranshahr Art Gallery)  >>> Follow him on Instagram
