Rafi

In 1991, I began to paint in gouache over some old letters which were dusting away in the back of old cupboards and forgotten for many years. I used the pattern of the words and tried to bring them to life.

Painter and interior designer Rafi was born in Tehran. From an early age he was inspired by nature and its glory. At age sixteen he went to England to continue his studies. He graduated in interior design from Rochester College of Art in Kent and London College of Furniture. Rafi returned to Iran and began teaching interior design. He later became the director of the Kerman Museum of Modern Art. These are selections from his web site: h-rafi.com.
