Ala Ebtekar is an American-based visual artist who lives in the San Francisco Bay Area. Ebtekar is known primarily for his work in painting, drawing, and installation that explores the juncture between history and myth, forging a multi-faceted project that melds Persian mythology, science, philosophy and pop culture together.

Ebtakar attended the San Francisco Art Institute and got his MFA at Stanford, has taught at Stanford and UC Berkeley, and shown his work in the Bay Area (Yerba Buena Center for the Arts, Asian Art Museum, etc.) and around the world. He has a show at Paule Anglim right now.
