Behnaz Abdollahi is an Iranian artist born in 1966 in Teheran. Her father, who was an experienced painter, introduced her to the world of art at a very young age with great enthusiasm. In 1985, she left Iran and and spent a few years between Turkey, Germany and Spain, where she learnt new techniques and further developed her painting style.
Later she discovered mural paintings and colourful interior designs, as another field of expression and as a possibility to realise her paintings in a larger scale.
Since 2011, she has lived in Germany and continues to paint as well as writes poetry and is also interested in filmmaking and photography. Her work has been exhibited in UK, Germany, Turkey and throughout Iran.
