Dr. Keiany born in Shiraz, Iran in 1970 is a well-known painter with over 80 exhibitions globally. He lives and works in UK and is a PhD from Birmingham Institute of Arts and Design, Birmingham City University. Oxford University Press has recently published a book written by him titled "Balochistan - Architecture, Craft & Religious Symbolism". Dr. Keiany’s style, technique and use of materials blend approaches from both East and West. The most important cultural inspiration, however, comes from past and present Persian cultural traditions. References to Persian miniatures, manuscripts, archaeology, history, pottery, music, calligraphy, poetry, ceramic tiles and current political and social and environmental situation of Iran appear in his paintings.
