Qahar Behzad: The Colors of Afghanistan

August 5 @ 8:00 am - 6:00 pm

- Free

Since the age of six, Qahar Behzad was recognized by his friends and family as being incredibly gifted. Having drawn his first portrait of the former Afghan king, Mairwais Naika, Qahar received unwavering encouragement to pursue farther development as an artist

Talking inspiration and technique from some of history’s most famous and recognizable artists such as Vincent Van Gogh and Claude Monet , as well as incorporating traditional Afghan landscapes and story books in his work, Behzad boasts of being the very first vendor to display and sell his paintings at Camp Eggers in Kabul .

“I had no real training are instruction in art,” Qahar explained. “I just sit down and began to draw, and everyone who looked at my drawing appreciated what my artwork stood for and pushed me to continue.”

Now at 19, Qahar enjoys painting in his shop in Kabul within Camp Eggers.
