Kami (born in Tehran in 1956, lives and works in New York) studied philosophy at the University of California, Berkeley, and at the Sorbonne in Paris. Using photographs of his close friends and family members, he paints portraits on large-scale canvases; while blurry, they are deliberately realistic. In Ava, he portrays a woman with her eyes closed, meditating, her face an impenetrable mask. The work is on loan to the Los Angeles County Museum of Art as part of the exhibition “Y.Z. Kami: Endless Prayers” from November 19, 2016, to March 19, 2017. <b>L.E</b> </div>
