Born in 1969, Darvish Fakhr grew up in the U.S. before moving to Britain where his practice has been based for the last two decades. In 1997 he graduated from the Slade School of Fine Arts, London. In 2004 he won the BP Travel Award, through the National Portrait Gallery, which allowed him to visit his father’s home country of Iran and begin his depictions of Iranian culture. Since then, Fakhr has taken Iran as his principal subject and has been exhibiting in Tehran at the prestigious Aun Gallery. In 2008 he was asked by National Portrait Gallery to paint a portrait of the contemporary dancer Akram Khan; his nine-part panel painting now forms part of the NPG permanent exhibition.
