In 1975, he received his BA and went to Paris to continue his studies and education. Emdadian received his degree from Sorbonne in Visual Arts. He received more than tens international prizes. His paintings are mostly in large pieces, in oil on canvass and influenced by the mid-19 century spirit of the realism school.

His trees in fact symbolize his admiration for nature and life, glorify the power and perfection of life and supernatural powers and manifest tranquility, and stillness.
