Sarvenaz Keyhani

Dr Sarvenaz Keyhani is a psychiatrist working in general adult psychiatry in London. As well as a psychiatristshe is an artist and has been featured in the British Journal of Psychiatry.

Her work at FiLiArt, "Silent Cry", was done in 2001; it took a few months to finish the painting. It’s in oil paint, showing a scene of disaster, figures shouting and screaming but no one can hear them. Goya is one of her favourite painters and I love his paintings especially ‘The 3rd of May’ showing execution of Spanish rebels by the French army and how timeless that painting is. Similary, the clothing for the people in this painting is omitted, so they can belong to any time and any disaster showing the horrors of wars.
