Artist Shirin Sahba's Colorful Narrative

Nothing brings color and personality to a room like art. And almost any design sensibility would welcome the joyous work of Shirin Sahba.

Her vibrant canvases have the graphic quality of textiles while simultaneously telling a story about the people inhabiting her magical representations of the world.

Here are a few breathtaking examples from her website (first the full canvas, then a detail image):

It was hard to select just a handful! To see more, visit her website and her blog, Limonana.


  1. Wonderful work, so happy and cheerful feeling, it couldn't help but brighten a room.

    I see from her website that she spent her adolescence in Israel. I knew there had to be an Israeli component when I saw the name of her blog - limonana, mint lemonade and a contraction of the words limonada and menta (mint) is practically our national drink in the hot summer months :).

    My photography is available for purchase - visit Around the Island Photography and bring home something beautiful today!

  2. These are beautiful! I love the one of the coral and the ocean. I also like the one of the people swimming :-)

  3. Oh no! ANOTHER artist's work to lust over! Thanks Kate!
