Artist Focus: Hamed Zahed Mousavi
Illustrator – IRAN
Hamed Zahed Mousavi was born in an artist family whose father encouraged them to painting. His brothers, who have great talents in art, prepared a background for him to enter the world of art. Hamed studied graphic in collage and practiced working with charcoal, watercolor, and oil color at the same time. After completing his educations he has experienced working with various companies as a graphic designer and an illustrator that made him familiar with digital illustration.
Hamed believes that each artist must experience different styles and structures in order to be successful in developing his ideas. He has been motivated by Rembrandt’s lighting, Picasso’s deconstructions, and Baroque paintings for presenting his artworks. Hamed believes a successful artwork is the one that can have a complete connection with his audience; a connection between the creator and its audience that can convey embedded meanings of the artwork.
