RASSOULI is an artist and an author who is known for his unique style of Fusionart. He migrated to the United States from Iran as a young man and is currently residing in Southern California.
Rassouli grew up studying under traditional Iranian painting masters while searching volumes of artistic works of varied traditions and styles. He roamed the art museums, won awards for his paintings, and traveled in classical Europe as a teenager prior to going to the United States in 1963 to further explore his artistic drive. There, he studied fine arts and architecture at the University of New Mexico and environmental psychology at the University of Southern California.
Although he practiced architecture for a time, painting ultimately became his overpowering passion and his profession. Through the years, Rassouli has created hundreds of canvases, in his unique style of Fusionart, which invite the viewer into the union between the Eastern philosophy and the Western technology.
The conceptual approach of Fusionart has been developing in Rassouli since early childhood, which is evident in the expansive scope and variety of his art works. Rassouli paints with rags, with his fingers, and uses his favorite brushes when he feels moved to enhance what is happening on the canvas. He begins with a canvas primed with black paint and brings the light of vision to it developing a relationship with the appearing images as he creates.
Within the past thirty
years, He has exhibited widely in the United
States, Europe and Asia and has created several
major murals. Rassouli's art has been
featured in numerous books and periodicals,
including several books that he has written and
are available at bookstores and on the internet.
He guides others through his writings, in
retreats, shares his approach to creativity
through public talks, in radio and television
interviews, in videos and films, and above all
through his paintings.
