Rouzbeh Tahmassian left his homeland Iran with his parents in 1986. They did not know what to expect beyond the borders. After a long and non-dangerous journey they finally arrived in the Netherlands. The language was strange to his parents and the habits different. Despite this, they were curious about the unknown and very open-minded.
Rouzbeh has always been involved with photography and image. His contemporary work as a visual artist is characterized by various mixed media techniques. The basis of his work is the photo. He uses many different materials such as paint, (bees) wax, sanguis, gold and silver, cotton and various types of resin. The frames have been turned off beforehand, but the creative process only starts after the photo is attached to the wooden panel. In this he is guided by his feeling. He is always looking for a new effect, a new image, looking for the unknown. He has the feeling that there is always more to discover.
Each work of art is unique and handmade from start to finish. The photos that have been used are limited to a maximum of 5 print runs. All works have a signature on the back of the panel. The work does not need a frame and can be hung directly.
