BAHRAM HAJOU | PORTRAIT OF A COUPLE

14junAll Day14julBAHRAM HAJOU | PORTRAIT OF A COUPLE

Event Details

A selection of works by Bahram Hajou from 2003 to 2010.
There is an unusual ease in Bahram Hajou’s work. A soft gaze at the viewer hiding deep emotions and conflicts of gender and identity.

A German specialist and art critic Walter Schurian attributes to Bahram Hajou an artistic competence from a technical, iconographic, aesthetic and expressive point of view which gives the painter incomparable power and a unique status.

According to Walter Schurian, Bahram Hajou’s art is the art of the instant of immediacy. In appearance, the representation developed by Hajou is of the order of a sketch… only apparently! It is frontal… It moves in a whiteness of snow… It is light. His elements develop “thrifty” figures in form and massiveness. Bahram Hajou is considered a great painter of the desert of his origins but of an unequaled expressive richness who does not seek to achieve forms and finished figures through his details but with approaches of proximity… abstract, on the surface!
