Raza Bukhari

Raza Bukhari was born in Rasht, Iran. While growing up he was greatly influenced by Persian art especially Persian miniature painting and carpets. He was in awe of Persian carpets and works by the Great Mahmoud Farshchian , which is a house hold name in Iran. He also saw diversity of two different cultures, as his mother is an Irani and father is from Pakistan. This difference later became a key component in his works as he amalgamated these two cultures as one. As Bukhari’s family shifted to Pakistan, he followed his passion for miniature paintings and came to National College of Art’s (NCA). Here, he explored contemporary miniature. Mean while, he kept going to Iran and learned the art of illumination .
After his graduation, he went to Iran and got enrolled in prestigious Tehran University to study the Art of illustration, as miniature painting is illustration in totality. The history of the University of Tehran goes back to the days of Dar ul-Funun and the Qajar dynasty.
