Lunar Love

Lunar Love
by Kamran Nikravan, MD

Lunar Love was painted in 2009, with mixed media on a 20” x 20” wood panel. It is a depiction
of moonlight’s grace and beauty. Dr Nikravan has enjoyed and practiced meditation
for many years, and this has influenced his practice of medicine and life in general
in a very substantial way. His art, whether landscape or abstract, is a byproduct of this influence.

His usual mediums are oil and acrylic paints on canvas or wood panels. You can find more
of his work at: Dr Nikravan is an Urologist at the West Los Angeles
Medical Center in CA.
