Darius Yektai Art

American, b. 1973

Darius Yektai was born in Southampton, New York, in 1973, to Irani-American parents. He lives and works out of his home and studio in Sag Harbor. He grew up around art and artists and his father, Manoucher Yektai, was a prominent Hamptons Ab/Ex painter. Darius has picked up some traits from his father but pushes even further into what is now completely his-own. His most recent body of work is bright, colorful, with oil and acrylic paints laid on thick. He's creating sculptural paintings that can't be read from left to right, they need to be examined from surface to base, from section to section, and then overall as an encompassing whole. Yektai studied at the Occidental College in Los Angeles in California from 1991–94, earned his bachelor’s degree in art history from the American University in Paris from 1994–96 and studied at the Studio Art + Design, San Diego State University, from 1998–99.
