Nassrin Barekat, is one of those unique people with active right and left brains. She was trained as an accountant, and as an artist. Paul Gauguin comes to mind.
Her work, which is contemporary, is now on display the Art People Gallery in San Francisco, California.
Her work has been exhibited in Iran and here in the US.
Some of her work is available online under "My Gallery" tab.

Monir Shahroudy Farmanfarmaian, Parviz Tanavoli, Y. Z. Kami, Shirin Neshat, Afruz Amighi, and Ali Banisadr have some interesting art at exhibit at the Metropolitan Museum of Art.
Four of the artists, live and work in the United States, while two continue to work in Iran.
Ms. Farmanfarmaian is nearly 90, and active as an artist for over five decades. And I think that is what I like about this event. It covers artists in their 30s, all the way to their near 90s. Very diverse, and showing the span of coverage of contemporary art among Iraninan artists.
The exhibit is on until September 2012. For more information, please see ART...
