Iranian American Artists in NYC

Neshat, Behnoud, Namjoo

Vanity Fair published a list of 11 Iranian-American artists, filmmakers, musicians, and designers who have established themselves in New York City, including artist, photographer, and filmmaker, Shirin Neshat; designer, Nima Behnoud; and Iranian folk singer/songwriter Mohsen Namjoo.

We know there are scores of Iranian-Americans missing from the list, but it’s a nice – albeit small – sample of the amount of talent Iran has to offer.
