Abol Bahadori was born in Tabriz, the capital of Iranian Azerbaijan. As a child he was inspired by the colorful carpets in his home. He won the "Best Young Artist" prize at age nine among the local schools. He studied art in his hometown and later in Manchester, England. He has more recently studied abstract art under John Blee, Beverley Ryan, and Adam Lister. He is a member of the Philadelphia Museum of Art as well as Del Ray Artisans, Alexandria Art League, and Falls Church Arts and has actively shown his work in Washington, DC and the Northern Virginia.
Visual art is a non-verbal method of communication. I prefer abstract art—not just for its liberating effects but also for its capacity to help me realize those things that are not known to me at a conscious level. My artistic process is a spiritual journey that exists outside of the sense of self and intellect. More than an artist I consider myself a medium or a tool to manifest my belief that beings in this and other universes want to appear to us in a form, shape, or color visible to us. My art comes from my subconscious. For me color is everything. Color comes before shape and form. It creates the space, dimension, and—most importantly—the feelings.
