Reza Doust: 1986, BFA, Tehran University, Fine Arts
Reza Doust’s work is a revision of traditional Persian art, as it used to be defined by its logical structure, symmetrical dimensions, and mostly predictable composition. Throughout history, Persian art has been known for its decorative and ornamental qualities, its dazzling beauty and, to a large degree, its polished, symmetrical patterns. Doust’s art has a prominent presence in countries in the Persian Gulf region but lives and works in British Columbia, Canada.
