Gentle, considered, and earnest, Charlotte Sorapure and Saied Dai are married artists quietly creating master paintings in Bath, in the UK. They were a delight to talk with. Charlotte paints atmospheric paintings with subtle mysterious narratives. Saied paints portraits of people, places and things. His paintings bore through the surface to convey glimpses of the soul beneath. Both Charlotte and Saied have won numerous awards and scholarships and have exhibited widely in group, solo, and joint exhibitions.

Hello John. Thank you for posting this. I am a painter and have known Saied and Charlotte for many years. I don’t see them now as often as I did, as I moved from Bath to Devizes five or six years ago. We have talked about these things a lot over the years and it was nice to listen to them again via your podcast.
Both Charlotte Sorapure and Saied Dai have great wisdom that has been aquired over the years and are “true” artists because they are explores of the mind and not the “robots” of the modern art who are basic just colourers-in. Wonderful to hear such clear thoughts and a gentel approach to understanding life though art.
