  • Xamoosh

    (b. 1989, Tehran, Iran) Xamoosh began graffiti by putting his signature on the walls of the western districts of Tehran, and through more than a decade of activity in Persian graffiti writing, became one of the precursors and influencers in this area. Having created various calligraphy styles, he then decided he was going to expand his career, using his love for painting as a fresh opportunity to gain new experiences and step into the field of urban art in a new level.
    His active presence in the city during the last few years was replete with creating images talking of social issues and cultural origins, generally bearing short but deep messages.
    The image of a lonely human in different situations is one of the remarkable points used by Xamoosh to transfer his message and abstract notions. A part of his late works has been inspired by Iranian miniature and Persian poetry; a selection of these will be shown in the forthcoming event.
    He says: I have set up a special connection with the city and its streets beyond social rules and structures, always tried to add things to streets and receive others from them. This connection has been going on during these years, offering a great source of inspiration to me. I remember the day I was heading to Hafiz tomb by taxi, sunken in the thoughts that how, in the course of centuries, names have become places, losing their meaning more than before. In this collection, I have tried to illustrate a drop of the deep sea of Iranian culture, art and literature from the perspective of Xamoosh.
