Iranian-American artist Behnaz Ahmadian is an acrylic/mixed media artist based in Colorado. She is a self-taught artist and an art instructor. Behnaz is very fascinated with pattern and color and incorporates them in her paintings. Pattern and color stimulates the eye and creates interest. Creating each piece is like a journey that takes her back to when she was introduced to fabrics and patterns through her mom who was a fashion designer. Watching her mom’s work influenced Behnaz and captivated her and made her who she is today.
It’s very crucial for Behnaz to be able to self-express herself and be able to escape from every day. With art she gets to go to her own little world, that is beautiful, fun and all the colors are bold and brighter than reality. Art is how she fits into her surroundings. Art is how she meets new people, new friends, new opportunities that allows her to grow and challenges her to learn new things. Hence, Behnaz always has a burden to create, not to remain stark and simple and show the world just who she is.
It’s important for Behnaz in this fast pace world to stop and look at her surroundings, take notice and appreciate all the details in life and objects. For her art, she want the viewer to get up close and stare at all the patterns and shapes and to feel a sense of satisfaction and energy.
