Shahoo Babaei was born in 1979 in Marivan, Iran, and studied painting at the University of Art in Tehran. He is a member of the Iranian Society of Painters of Iran as well as a member of the Visual Arts Society of Iran.
The subject in his work is often difficult to discern. Some of his paintings are given concrete names, whereas others dissolve into almost total abstraction. His style is characterised by the use of a distinctive palette of earthy tones. Babaei’s work was featured as part of the show Whispered Secrets, Murmuring Dreams.
His work has been exhibited in numerous galleries, both as solo and group exhibitions, in galleries such as Etemad Art, Homa Art or Arya Art Gallery in Tehran.
