Columbus artist's work celebrates Persian women

Chromedge Studios will feature this Westerville-based artist's work during Franklinton Fridays. A native of Iran, Bayati tells the story of the women of her home country, employing floral motifs and bold colors. The stories are personal, familial and historical, inspired by the artist's upbringing in a family without a father in a patriarchal society, and the beauty, anger, power and sadness of all Iranian women.
