Kamran Khavarani was born into an artistic family in Iran in 1941. He started painting at the age of three and when he was twelve years old he began to study classical painting with the well-known artist, Reza Samimi.
Mr. Khavarani completed his education in 1966 from Tehran University with a Master's degree in Architecture and a Ph.D. in Urban Design. His graduate work was done under the guidance of his mentor Master Houshang Seyhoun, the internationally renowned Iranian authority in art and architecture.
Khavarani has won numerous architectural awards and recognitions such as: 'California Building Official's highest award of excellence' for single family residence, the design award for 'The White House' in Savyon, Tel Aviv, and the design for the 'City Theatre of Tehran' which was an international competition. His paintings are housed in many private art collections.
His earlier paintings were influenced by his classical and formal training in arts and architecture. Since his recent encounters with the philosophy of Rumi and other great teachers, both the artist and his art have been transformed and his current paintings carry subtle mystical messages.
By combining unique movements of color with a play of emotions, Kamran Khavarani creates a rare fusion of Romanticism with the abstraction.
