Kermanshah/IRAN

Shahriar Ahmadi Contemporary Modern Artist at sholeh abghari art gallery marbellaSHAHRIAR AHMADI started self-training calligraphy by himself before he starts the Art School. During his professional career, Shahriar Ahmadi has tried to maintain the relation between the image and the text in his work in accordance with the Iranian painting tradition. This relationship, through the influence of the abstract expressionist movement, has created a new form of art, which, while purely formalistic, also expresses poetic concepts. For
this reason, Shahriar Ahmadi’s painting curtains can be seen as a confrontation between narration and abstraction. Another feature of his other paintings is the skillful use of brilliant colors derived from Iranian painting.

The artist spontaneously uses a variety of color palettes and repeatedly paints a color on another color, covers the form with another form, and is the result of the form-shaped forms of a thousand-pound that is in a diffuse combination, a new form of destruction and reintegration Translated into visual language. This being and lack of, finding and fading is rooted in the thoughts of Iranian mysticism, which is expressed in the words of poets such as Rumi, Hafez and Khayyam, and in the present world is reminiscent of painting. The texture of this type of painting is progressively shaped to bring human and animal figures to the limits of abstraction and exaggeration, and exhibits a new meaning in organic expressions in an expressionist action.

In 1995, he won the First Environment Award in Japan and in 2007 he won the international Painting Biennial of the Islamic world. He had more than fifteen individual exhibition in Tehran, Zurich, Lucerne, Dubai, Istanbul, London and more than 150 group exhibitions in Iran, switzerland, France, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, USA, Turkey, UAE, Japan, Venezuela, Lebanon, Kuwait, China and others.
