Darius Yektai Art

American, b. 1973

Darius Yektai was born in Southampton, New York, in 1973. He lives and works out of his home and studio in Sag Harbor. Darius grew up in a cultural home of art and artists, with his Greek-American mother and his father, Manoucher Yektai, an Iranian who emigrated to the United States after the Second World War. Manoucher was a prominent Hamptons Abstract Expressionist painter. Darius has picked up some traits from his father but pushes even further into what is now completely his own.

Darius’s most recent body of work is bright and colorful, with oil and acrylic paints laid on thickly. 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.
