Stunning Pastels by Javad Soleimanpour

Credit: Javad Soleimanpour

Javad understands that his audience can interact with the subjects in his portraits because he paints not only what he sees but also what he feels.

This artist's talent has captured not only his subject's form and beauty but also their essence on canvas by embedding emotions into the canvas.

Javad Soleimanpour is relatively new on the art scene. It was not until April of 2009, after he won first place in an Iranian art competition in the Landscape and Interior Category, that critics, galleries and buyers started to take notice. Ironically, Javad had no idea that one of his students had entered his work for the competition.

Visual Artist, Javad Soleimanpour

Javad Soleimanpour, Iran

Soleimanpour is self-taught, painting since the age of 12 and painting professionally for quarter of a century.

I will let Soleimanpour speak for himself:

“Since my childhood I only wanted to paint, and nothing else. I have painted the people and things I liked. The people always had things to tell but they never knew that I just liked to watch them talking instead of listening, which maybe I must apologize for. The faces with all of their ripples, texture and the shadows… time stands still when I paint (them). And what lies behind the engaging of my art with the viewer is something that comes from deep inside, in my heart. That never-ending intensive feeling and to deal with any issues on painting have become mundane for me, such as breathing."
