Graceful Paintings Portraits by Iranian Artist Bahman
Self-taught artist, my work is influenced by various Schools, from the encaustic paintings of the antiquity ( the Fayum portraits) to the more refined works of the Quattrocento. It combines disparate elements and artifacts from past civilisations.
“I find my inspiration in mysticism and esotericism with borrowed elements from various Schools of thought.”
There are many sources of inspirations. Icons, illuminated miniatures, ancient artifacts from the Etruscan to the Byzantine era. The work is based upon contrasts between the mat paper and the golden parts which come with different textures and degrees of reflection. It goes from mat to very glossy .
