I MET MY WIFE BARBARA IN TOWSON-MARYLAND

I have been painting on and off for last 35 plus years.
My works are conceptual, spiritual , mystical and metaphysical in surrealistic tradition.
Art world constantly fluctuates between FINE - COMMERCIAL , HIGH -LOW, SUBLIME - BEAUTIFUL.
FINE, HIGH, SUBLIME are synonymous.
The art world is the phantom field of creativity and its function is universal.
Art is divided to two categories. The beautiful art and sublime. High art is sublime , its function is to illuminate or awaken the soul in search for truth and authenticity . The Artistic seeds of sublime images lands in layers of thoughts, where planting ground is imagination. These thoughts finally yields random pure images. Oil paintings are the ultimate pure original image.
Artwork outside of Fine Art / Sublime classification is more about a beautiful image, it is more mechanical , commercial, is about systematic of beautiful image or its final application and projection within the world of appearance. The beautiful always seduce or please the eye. I think the sublime is more beautiful. My hope is to create art with fair balance between pure image and its relationship to my world and outside . Art is about humanity and great works of art should bring all essential and crucial elements to the forefront in order to harmonize and humanize. I think, this is a great way for me to seek truth and authenticity . My art is not about me and never political.
I also like create images that are historical in nature, most of them are connected to ancient Iran or Persia. Few are oil and the rest are digital art. The historical theme gives me great joy. The digital renderings are from actual images from different historical sites in Iran, such as Persepolis or Takhte Jamsheed, Naghshe Rostam, Bistun, Shush or Susa.
Recently I added some Posters to my Collections, I hope you enjoy all my work.
