Faam Gallery's Art Wall is a place dedicated to promoting talented artists. Every two weeks, a new artist is promoted here. This week's Art Wall features a one-of-a-kind collection of original oil paintings from a self-taught artist who discovered his calling in calligraphy and the use of symbolic elements to depict his ideas on canvas.
Born in 1960 in Iran, west Azerbaijan, and studied graphic design at the Islamic Republic of Iran Broadcasting University. He is a self-taught artist who discovered his calling in calligraphy and the use of symbolic elements to depict his ideas on canvas. Jahani began his career as a professional artist under the mentorship and support of Marziyeh Ramezani, and was able to explore more techniques and various repeated patterns and elements to develop his painting style.
He later began to further develop his style and produced paintings with various themes such as underwater, animals and patterns, all of which include interlocking calligraphy letterings. His works has been shown in numerous exhibitions around the world and also sold at the Rosebery Auction in London.
