Zahra Hosseinkhan is an international Persian Canadian artist who was born in Tehran Iran In 1971. Her passion for visual arts started at a very young age of twelve. Her skill was already peaking to professional level and she was encouraged to pursue her studies at the Tehran University of fine arts, and graduated with BA visual arts in 1992.
Also she had the good fortune of being one of a select few to study under three of Iran’s professors and master painters in different areas and media to ensure a fundamental understanding of the methods and practice of highly realistic and surrealistic oil painting, water color, pencil drawing and pen and ink. All three professors guided Ms. Hosseinkhan along a path to technical brilliance in all the fundamental elements of painting and drawing.
Soon after, Zahra’s private tutelage and course was complete and she was encouraged to continue her artistic pursuit as a teacher and gallery owner. Ms. Hosseinkhan was selected for the Public School System’s tutored art program and soon become its featured artist. It came as no surprise when on her 21st birthday; she also celebrated the grand opening of her own gallery and art academy in her home city of Tehran.
