YALDA SEPAHPOUR

Born in Teheran, Iran, in 1995, Yalda Sepahpour found her passion for art at the tender age of eight.  Once it was time to enter high school, Sepahpour’s parents sent her to study in Switzerland, in order to offer their daughter the best education possible.  At school, she was inspired by a particularly critical art teacher who pushed her further in technique and her creation process.  She received encouragement from teachers once she started painting with one continuous line.  Exploring this element allowed her to discover a new world of artistic endeavors.    


In 2015, she continued her art studies at Laguna College of Art and Design in California, where her family joined her. Sepahpour’s studies in CA allowed her to refine her technical skills in traditional painting. She excels at and embraces technique-based realism; however, a looser approach better expresses Sepahpour’s character and values. 


Throughout her body of work, Sepahpour depicts and celebrates the unique strength and inner beauty that is essentially feminine. Further, it is her personal way of honoring her understanding of feminism and the quest for equal rights. Sepahpour pays tribute to the heroic women who sacrifice their lives to improve the feminine condition around the world.
