Shirin Sahba’s Contemporary Paintings

Shirin Sahba artwork

From afar, the paintings creating by Shirin Sahba looks unique with ‘brush strokes’ boldly painted on canvas.

Seemingly, resemblance a blend of techniques between Van Gogh’s impasto and pointilism.

Yet, it doesn’t appear to be coming out, as if medium was painted thickly on canvas, nor totally using point-dots.

Interestingly, the aestheticism of the entire artwork does strongly depict its color vibrancy and visual aliveness.

With the guided arrays of small objects, detailing as fish, floral, or even fine strokes, thus, creating a kind of landscaping effect on her art piece.

What has even more intriguing is the tiny characters appearing sparsely and breaking off the repeating patterns in her paintings.

You will start to examine closely as you wonder what’s that small object painted on that line.

Characteristic objects could be loving couples, fisherman, trishaw riders, a red fox, a horse, elephant, Indian’s dancer and musicians, trees, etc.

At first glance of the paintings by Shirin Sahba has not instantly caught my attention on the miniature characters painted on the canvas.

It took me quite a while to figure it out by looking far and near, and relating the close-up view.

Her paintings definitely demand a closer look.

All the paintings are worth your appreciation,  be it near or far.

Blog about Oil Paintings and Chinese Culture

Time after time, I have been wondering what I should be doing in this blog. First off, I have shortened the description of this blog to include only “oil paintings” and “Chinese culture“.

Ideas so broad and free from any restriction. More often than not, this blog has been about oil paintings and Chinese culture. The former idea is a challenge for me, since I’m not a painting artist.

Oil paintings is my interest I hope to learn more from other great painting artists. I love fine arts, visual art and oil paintings. I will not be able to showcase my art work by blogging. Practically, not so able to gain a good chance of hands-on with oil on canvas.

Despite that limitation, I cannot rule out the possibility of learning digital paintings. It could be a new trend. I might want to try that to explore my creativity too. 

Presently, I’m learning to appreciate all sort of art form for its aesthetics and conceptual purpose. I’m doing my own study and research. Studying about art history from Renaissance art to Impressionism movement. As well as, modern art, like Expressionism, Cubism, Surrealism.

Vincent van Gogh was the great Dutch post-impressionist painter. There are more to learn from his paintings. Claude Monet has great painting technique of alla prima, also refer as wet-on-wet painting.

Good example of Claude Monet famous artwork will be the series of water lilies paintings. Believe it or not, approximately 250 oil paintings by French Impressionist in his life span.
