Hamid Asadi was born in Iran on May 1983. He currently lives and works in Tehran, Iran. His large scale work appears to show current motion frozen on canvas. His use of vibrant colors is very vivid and one can not escape the power of his paintings imposed on the viewer. He is very affluent in painting animals and especially the equestrian subject matter almost impressionist to abstract. Hamid’s under water series is very mesmerizing in such a manner which makes you gasp for air in order to recover from the emotion he evokes with such subject matters.
Saeed Asadi was born in Iran on September 1984. He also currently lives and works in Tehran, Iran. His use of everyday object often old and beaten up images juxtaposed on his large scale canvas are almost imaginary yet very real. Aboosaeed choice of strong colors is vibrant with the exact amount of contrast to allow the painting breath without overcrowding. He creates negative and positive space on his loose paintings without any fear shown. The expression of his subjects are masterfully painted showing off his talent with the bravery and confident brush strokes. His trees and trucks series are the fundamental approach for his paintings which will keep the viewer begging for more.
Behrooz Valiani was born in Iran in April 1979. He currently lives and works in Esfahan, Iran. His minimalist style and techniques are very mysterious and often forbidden subject matters, which drives him to think on a new untapped level. Often painting single images of women in a peaceful cloud like dream. First class understanding of human anatomy and use of colors makes the simplicity of his paintings very desirable. The space he creates is not very obvious of where the subject matter comes from or where they are going. Valiani use of censoring checkers or block faces is his cries towards the environment he has been exposed to. He somehow marries the abstract with expressionist style together in harmony.
