Behroo Bagheri

The emphasis in Behroo Bagheri 's work is to produce a social narrative, which deals with her self-conscious feelings and frustrations as a woman. Her life has undergone some undeniable circumstances in the contemporary Middle East . She has suffered from the oppressive atmosphere of the fundamentalist society with its restrictive policies and discriminations. Behroo Bagheri has developed a style of painting, based on her studies on children's paintings aged from 2 to 8.
