Salar Ahmadian

March 1999

Salar Ahmadian is tapping into the wealth of his resources with a boundless capacity for versatility and self-expression. He is a painter, sculptor, designer, calligrapher and goldsmith. Persian miniature art is blended with Maqritte-style surrealism and modernized calligraphy that turns letters of the alphabet into shapes dripping with meaning. Working with oils, Ahmadian uses an array of brilliant colours in a manner that he says is similar to that of 19th-century European impressionist artists. A common theme is conveyed through the depiction of a pomegranate which symbolizes his hometown and the flower, which is painted as valuable pieces of jewellery made up of diamonds emeralds and rubies.
