Nikoo is a skilful artist best known for his expressive artworks. Although Nikoo is a Persian Master in watercolour, he also has recourse to acrylic, ink and airbrushing in his paintings. To achieve a blending of the traditional and the contemporary, Nikoo has developed a unique technique. His expertise in rendering flowers, plants and architectural subjects is greatly respected and has impressed viewers around the world. Some of Nikoo’s most well-known works have been assembled and published in Selected Works of Bahman Nikoo.
