Sausalito - Artist Shivs Pakdel Persian Art

San Francisco Bay Area Artist Shiva Pakdel

Modern Reproduction of 19th Century Royal Persian Art



Shiva Pakdel grew up in Abadan, Iran during the 60s. Abadan, one of the most liberal cities in Iran, offered a modern western lifestyle in a land of history and tradition.

This exposure to both east and west provided her with great appreciation and enjoyment for art, culture, history, and poetry of Iran, as well as the art and culture of the West.

In the past 30 years, while developing her professional career in marketing and advertising for large companies, Shiva has also pursued her true passion for art.

Her life-long desire to create and communicate via art has resulted in several art shows, and art organizations focused on the Iranian-American artists as well as the art of Iran.

Her current project is a large scale project that tells the story of late 19th and early 20th century Iran through postage stamps.

Modern Presentation of Persian Art


As a lover of Persian Art and a collector of antique Iranian stamps from 1880's on, I experiment with techniques that help to modernize images, stamps, contracts and other documents created in Iran during 16 th to early 20 th centuries.

I use acrylic paint, charcoal, pencil, printing and collage on wood panels to construct new images that promote public awareness and appreciation of the beautiful art of 17 -19th century.
