Reza Safa

I was born and raised in Tehran, Iran. I left Iran right after High School and attended College in Houston, Texas. I grew up in an artsy family. My father was a poet and an author.

I began painting and Persian calligraphy at an early age. I attended one of my dad’s friends’ school of calligraphy who was a master calligrapher. Little by little I expanded my art into sculpting, woodworking, and stained glass. painting is my way of capturing light. That is what I desire to accomplish through oil painting. I hope my work becomes an inspiration to many people that no matter what they may face in life, there is light at the end of the tunnel.
