Born in 1940, Cyrus Afsary trained in the style of famed Russian impressionists Ilya Repin and Valentin Serov. In his teens he was commissioned to paint portraits of Frank Sinatra, Dean Martin, and other Hollywood and Las Vegas personalities. After college, Afsary broadened his horizons, painting landscapes and still lifes in addition to portraits. The American West, as Afsary paints it, is a soft-edged, beautiful place forever in a state of becoming.
