Salar Ahmadian is tapping into the wealth of his resource with a boundless capacity for versatility and self expression.
He is a painter, sculpture, designer, calligrapher and gold smith.
Persian miniature art are blended with Maqritte-style surrealism and a modernized calligraphy that turns letters of the alphabet into shapes dripping with meaning. Working with oils, Ahmadian uses an array of brilliant colors 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 flower, which is painted as a valuable pieces of jewelry made up of diamonds emeralds and rubies.
