After a 101-day journey to Africa and Asia to complete his new project of painted T-shirts, "On the Red Line," Soheil Tavakoli returned to NY last month. Showcased in limited quantities for this event will be the work of architect and artist, Soheil Tavakoli, whose hand drawn T-shirts, or "wearable paintings," bring his subject to life in an individual and original manner. Using "the energy of moments," as he likes to call his moments of inspiration before creation, Soheil employs all of his senses to create each piece.

Originally from Tehran, Soheil graduated with honors in Architecture from Beheshti University then embarked on his artistic activities in painting. His work has been presented in numerous architecture, interior and furniture design exhibitions. In 2009 after a highly disputed presidential election in Iran, Soheil found the opportunity to demand freedom and democracy in Iran using his talent in art and visual media. Soheil was interviewed by several press agencies such as the BBC as a result of his impact.
