Guildford's Yvonne Arnaud Theatre


Christine Taherian, SWA
Christine was born in Cardiff in 1960. During late 70’s she went to Glasgow and attended a Fine Art Course in Glasgow University. She then moved to Tehran with her family and continued studying and practicing painting.
While she was in Tehran, she worked with Jaleh Delzendeh, a prominent Iranian Artist, she also studied Persian language and researched on Middle Eastern art and culture. Christine has produced art works in different mediums and styles but her major interest is impressionism using Oil, Acrylic and Mixed Medium.
Christine returned to the United Kingdom with her family in mid 90’s and continued working with different art groups in Surrey and London area. She is currently member of different art societies such as Guildford Art Society, Woking Art Society and The Society of Women Artists (SWA).
Christine has had a number of awards for her paintings and has been interviewed by the media, on a numerous occasions, for her achievements. She has participated in a number of exhibitions such as The Society of Women Artists (SWA) and The Royal Institute of Oil Painters (ROI). 
Christine values the usage of colours and forms to transfer her messages and gives less weight to details.
We have all experienced moments of life with strong feelings. Christine tries to capture these special moments of life, using impressionism, in a way that the viewer can build up the rest of the picture in his/her mind, based on the past experience and memory of the viewer. It encourages the viewer to contribute and create a version of painting which is uniquely the viewer’s own experience and therefore will be engaged with it.
