Behnavaz Rezvani , Artist
After completing her education in Vienna, Austria, Behnavaz ventured to the United States in the spring of 1997 to embark upon a career as a DSP Engineer in the Bay Area. Despite achieving success in the technical field, a health crisis compelled her to reassess her professional pursuits. Galvanized by an unwavering passion for painting that has been an enduring part of her identity since childhood, Behnavaz resolved to pivot her career path towards the arts. Today, her lifelong love for painting has blossomed into a fulfilling and meaningful career.
Behnavaz’ artistic journey, entirely self-taught, commenced with a focus on the intricate techniques of watercolor and ink, drawing inspiration from the iconic works of Ando Hiroshige and Winslow Homer. As she continued to refine her craft, she discovered a newfound sense of inspiration and challenge in the medium of painting, ultimately settling on the innovative techniques of abstract expressionism, color theory, and pop art. At present, Behnavaz’ approach to painting involves skillful manipulation of overlapping forms and sophisticated application of color theory principles to create a singular and visually arresting form of color conjunction. The results are pieces that are both innovative and captivating, a testament to Behnavaz’ enduring creativity and artistic vision.
