AN EXHIBITION OF PAINTINGS

Behnam Askari is a highly gifted visual artist and is a BA Hons Fine Arts student at Central Saint Martins College of Art & Design. Behnam and his family came to London in 2002. Behnam cannot return to his native Iran. He and his mother have been sentenced in absentia on political charges and face prison and torture. They are still waiting to be given the right to remain in the UK.
