Mostafa Keyhani, 1954 ~ Impressionist/Plein air painter

Iranian-born Canadian painter Mostafa Keyhani was born in Iran in 1954. It was during his years as a secondary school student that he was encouraged by one of his teachers to pursue his artistic talents. As a result, Mr. Keyhani became completely devoted to painting.

Mr. Keyhani studied art at Tehran and Dusseldorf Universities after receiving diplomas in biology and anatomy. Upon completion of these studies, he spent seven years traveling Germany and France, all the while developing his technique and style. He eventually became a Canadian citizen, where he lives today.

It is typical of Mr. Keyhani's paintings to convey the lively spirit of street scenes, scenic landscapes and the beauty of floral still life. Brilliance with colour and energetic compositions enchant the viewer. Mr. Keyhani's works are featured in galleries in Munich, Dusseldorf, Paris, Cannes, Canada and the United States. His paintings are in numerous important collections in France, Germany, the United States and Canada, where his work is on display in the permanent collection of the Canadian Parliament Building.
