Mostafa Dashti was born in Khash, Baluchestaan province, in 1960. Living and working as a professional artist in Tehran for the last 22 years.
He has held several individual exhibitions and the enclosed collection is a selection of his works of recent years.
His early work depicted powerful desert scenes. This relationship with landscapes, whether natural or human created, has continued over the years and is still apparent in most of his work today.
In recent years he has used a more abstract mode of communication and some of his work have indeed been abstract compositions. He has also preferred the use of darker colours.
Mostafa Dashti has been dedicated to the communication through painting since 1984. His deeply thought and emotion provoking work has appeared in exhibitions and displays throughout Tehran.
Mostafa Dashti has always been the eulogist of the great painters of the world.
