Mostafa Dashti was born in Khash, Baluchestaan province, in 1960. He has devoted many years to exploring the communication on canvas. He has studied painting and calligraphy under the tuition of Aidin Aghadashlou, the late Seyed Ahmad Abtahi and Abdulah Faradi.
His early work depicted powerful desert scenes. This relationship with landscapes, whether natural or human created, has continued over the years and is still apparent in most of his work today. In recent years he has used a more abstract mode of communication and some of his work have indeed been abstract compositions. He has also preferred the use of darker colors.
Mostafa Dashti has been dedicated to the communication through painting since 1984. His works have appeared in exhibitions and displays throughout Tehran.
