Hadi Ghaffar-Tehrani was born in 1965 in Iran and has been working at Creativity Explored since 2001.
With careful attention to repetition of form and color combination, Hadi creates complex drawings and paintings that are reminiscent of textiles in the intricacy of their patterned surfaces. These compositions are a combination of abstract and figurative elements, usually recognizable symbols like stars and crosses, animal figures, and geometric forms. Hadi tends to use earth tones and warm colors in his artwork, combining different hues and levels of saturation for a layered effect. Ghaffar-Tehrani has also begun to delve into other media, recently exploring digital art.
