Alireza Jahromi

Bio

Exploring a twilight realm where sounds meet images, Alireza Jahromi (b. 1984, Iran) creates and composes multi-layered universes in his drawings, collage-work, prints and paintings. His complex, dynamic scenes – some of which reference historic paintings notably by Rembrandt and Goya – are populated with characters from wandering horses to renowned classical singing figures and anonymous nudes. Crystalline, fragmented, and superimposed, Jahromi’s forms and colors behave like musical notes as they merge with one another to create a novel, integral and timeless space. “Not a single form has been manipulated and everything is as you see”, he points out regarding his approach, “a direct outcome of a pseudo-sonic transformation.” Jahromi often makes use of mixed-media techniques to achieve his desired effects.
