Turaj bio from the art fair site:
Turaj Ebrahimi Persian-American, b. 1938
Turaj Ebrahimi was raised in the Persian culture before moving to Europe to pursue art. He studied architecture, animation, and fine art in Spain and Belgium in the 1960s. He subsequently moved to New York City and expanded his interests to include photography. He settled in San Francisco during the 1980s where he continued his studies and added sculpture and print-making to his creative explorations.
His influences are diverse but he has been particularly inspired by ancient and early Mediterranean art. His mediums, themes, and styles have varied widely over the years. Reflecting back, he sees his work becoming more elemental and primal in nature, incorporating simpler and organic forms as well as found objects to present his ideas.
He has participated in many shows and been represented by several galleries over the years. We are pleased to now present works from several periods of his long artistic career.
Now in his late 80s, TURAJ — per his now widely known mononym — continues to live and practice in San Francisco. Many of his works from the 1980s and earlier are signed as “Touraj,” a French transliteration of his Farsi-origin name.
