Daapir in Kurdish (one of the regions of Iran) means grandmother. Once, I saw my student’s grandmother, she was staring off in a different direction, and there was a special feeling in her eyes which was so attractive for me. I captured that moment and painted that effective feeling.” – Marjan Abedian
