My name is Helia Tayebi, living in the beautiful and historic city of Delft in the Netherlands. Always in search of beauty, it stimulates and inspires me to make visual art. People fascinate me the most, which results in the main theme of my work: portraits. In doing so, I use photographs, either existing or my own. My style is best described as expressive and colorful, bold but yet delicate. I like to work with various materials which I also combine, such as ecoline, ink, pastel, pieces of colored paper and acrylic/oilpaint.
You can purchase the original artworks, but also choose high quality prints on canvas or poster in various sizes. The prints are not all in stock, when you order them I will have them freshly printed for you! It may take a few days longer, but I will always keep you informed about the process. Every order will be wrapped with a personal touch and a little surprise...
“Study me as much as you like, you will not know me,
for I differ in a hundred ways from what you see me to be.
Put yourself behind my eyes and see me as I see myself,
for I have chosen to dwell in a place you cannot see.”
