Sholeh Janati is an accomplished artist whose works are found in Europe, Middle East and North America. Her work is characterized by strong brush strokes, rich textures and vibrant colors and her creative, spontaneous and affectionate personality shines through her paintings, which unite past, present and future and represents a great strength of cultural identity.
Born in Tehran, she adopted the United States as her home in 1988. While her talents were originally recognized by Persian traditionalists, she has since concentrated on still life, nudes, portraits and abstract paintings, which has brought her praise from a broad spectrum of American and European enthusiasts. The vibrancy of her colors and her ability to express real life through her work is the defining characteristic of her creativity. Her recent works have focused on abstract paintings, through which she expresses her vision through a myriad of colors and shapes.
Sholeh's paintings typically evoke a unique response. Collectors of Sholeh's work have commented that her paintings provide a constant interaction with the viewer -- as if taken on a journey to a new place and time. By design, the paintings reveal a different vision when rotated to any angle -- as if the painting changes dynamically time after time in a constant interaction with the viewer. In this sense, the individual finds each of Sholeh's works as an expression of their own artistic vision.
Sholeh maintains two studios (Stamford, Connecticut and Westport, Connecticut). She is available for commissioned works for private collectors, interior designers and corporate collections.
