Fire. Earth. Water. Air exhibit displayed selected works of Bahadori through 2021. The ancient roots have always fascinated the artist as sources of inspiration and as gates into the world of mystique and unknown. The artist mixes such reminiscences of antiquity with futuristic elements of modern architecture and astronomy. He creates a battle between organic and geometrical shapes. “Narrative or abstract, all my compositions are excuses for chromatic experiments”, he says.
Abol Bahadori is an award-winning Azerbaijani artist residing in Northern Virginia. He started painting at a very early age inspired by colorful carpets in his hometown of Tabriz.

He received his Bachelor’s and Master’s in Fine Arts and Textile Design from The University of Manchester, U.K. Bahadori is an active member of Washington Project for Arts and The Art League of Alexandria, VA. His multicultural upbringing shines through in his use of bright colors and kaleidoscopic elements. The artist’s childhood colors and memories still show up in his paintings and always as elements of surprise. He calls them “colors of Azerbaijan.” Bahadori’s vibrant abstract and surreal works have been selected by local and international jurors for multiple solo and group exhibitions, receiving numerous prizes.
