This, the latest publication to depict his work, provides vivid testimony of his exceptional, indeed unique, qualities as an artist, Of one thing we can be certain: the art of Mahmoud Farshchian will endure.
Your extraordinary virtuosity conjures up so many moods, forms, and legends known from classical Persian painting. Your mastery of brush and pigment, as well as your intense devotion to a vital tradition, rewards those who travel through the world of your miniatures and drawings. For a foreigner such as myself, who has been addicted to Persian painting for most of his life (a slightly longer one than yours), it is exciting to recognize many motifs and characterizations.
On account of their extraordinary craftsmanship, their wide coloristic range and innate sense of the decorative aspect, the drawings and painting of Mr. Mahmoud Farshchian are in the true tradition of the great Iranian painters.
It is a pleasure to show the imaginative creations of Mr Farshchian, who surely, must be considered among the most talented contemporary artists.
Opening an art book of Mahmoud Farshchian is like leaping into the heart of a magical realm. A happy blend of the real and imaginary at once sets the tone for everything, thanks to an alchemy whose secret formula he seems to be one of the few to possess. People, nature, animals and objects are present; we recognize them for what they are, but at the same time we begin to see them differently. We do not see them in a dream, but touch them with a different way of looking. This is what makes Mahmoud Farshchian unique and exceptional. That is how it is. This is another stroke of the master's skill.
I am always amazed at the beautiful craftsmanship and the skill displayed in the paintings by Farshchian.
