Multicolored Palette Knife Portraits By Salman Khoshroo


Using an unusual painting technique, Tehran-based artist Salman Khoshroo creates large-scale figures and portraits that seem to drip from the canvas. The artist works with a large palette knife and thick globs of oil paint, depicting human bodies in different colorful shapes and close particular details that emerges from a certain distance.

The artworks have an exceptional big size, composed of enormously precise strokes that veer toward abstraction while eventually leading to a cohesive figure. The majority of his paintings were painted for a 2015 show at Azad Gallery and for an exhibition at Shirin Gallery.
