Mostafa Choobtarash was born in 1983 in Tehran, Iran. He holds both Bachelor and Masters degrees in painting from the Azad and Soureh Universities of Tehran. Mostafa’s work has been extensively exhibited in Iran since 2004, visiting a wide variety of galleries. Choobtarash’s work has a similar approach to graffiti art with traits such as sharp criticism, protest, humour and even destruction. The main theme of his paintings give one the impression that all the depicted historical, political and social characters, events, elements and symbols, have been attacked by a humorous blow, relieving the audience from their heavy load and allowing them to see the scenes in a comical manner.
