Mehdi has extensively traveled the world, meeting like minded artists who share with him that very vision, a gathering destination of those who want peace, camaraderie, and rest from the demands that every day living creates. He has lovingly restored an old farmhouse built in 1897 into an historic replica of the past.

Mehdi is a member of Laguna Beach Art Club and a member of Oil Painters of America. He has taken numerous workshops with well known American Plein Air artists, which include Matt Smith, Charles Sovek, John Budicin, George Stricklen and Ron Rancher.

Mehdi also participates annually in the very prestigious Carmel Art Festival which is held during the month of May. Mehdi has collected many awards for his artwork. The most recent award was a winner of the RayMar Fine Art Competition in 2008.

“I see my art as a way a person can connect with nature, the very force that keeps us grounded and in touch with who we really are and in harmony with our natural surroundings.”
