Art in Love Paintings by Artist Bahman

Textured love portrait paintings by Artist Bahman

I draw my inspiration greatly from esotericism without this being the main theme of my work. There are many references to Greek mythology, Christianity and the Kabbalah. All this is indicated by sometimes insignificant details that only attract the attention of a connoisseur. I like to borrow elements from ancient times and civilizations, sometimes unrelated to each other, to make a heterogeneous whole which never the less has a certain unity. In the same way, I mix pictorial influences from ancient Greece, the Italian Renaissance, or the Baroque. A kind of fusion painting according to my desires without being based on anything concrete or authentic. The important thing is to achieve a harmonious whole, which sometimes conveys a subliminal message. The search for beauty remains above all my main goal.

The texture of the paintings is as important as the paint. From embossing to the inclusion of stones through additions of various objects such as feathers or metal sheets, all covered with gold, the texture gives a three-dimensional aspect to the painting, the appearance of which changes according to the light. This is the reason why my works lose their interest when they are seen in the form of photographs. My inspiration comes from ancient icons where only the faces and hands of saints were painted and everything else was just gilding and engraving. Between traditional painting and the bizarre object, my works would easily find their place in what was once called a cabinet of curiosities. ~ @bahman.artiste
