About

One form of contemporary abstract art in Iran, hermetic images, has a rich historical background. These images can be observed in various architectural works and geometric designs, as well as Sassanid mosques and palaces up until the Qajar era. Such symbols are also prevalent in Iran's traditional art, such as in the columns found by the local people along the Persian Gulf coast, which have become part of their popular religious culture. Pouria's fascination with this art style first began when he discovered minimalist abstract art in New York, eventually leading him back to the geometric roots of Iranian art. His paintings incorporate different interpretations of mandalas, showcasing both geometric and figurative elements, while simultaneously blending modern action painting techniques. The artworks also serve as a reminder of the artist's passionate dedication to his craft, reflecting his intense emotional connection with each piece.
