Born in Tehran, Iran, Bahar Behbahani is an Iranian artist who lives and works in New York and Tehran. She received her diploma from the School of Plastic Arts in 1991, her B.A. in Painting in 1995 and her M.A. in Painting in 1998. Before graduating high school, she had witnessed a revolution, an eight-year war, and her country in the midst of uncertainty, repression, hope and contradiction. These were—and are—the prevalent forces surrounding her. As an artist, she continues these struggles, reexamining love, femininity, identity, freedom, morality and humanity.
