  • About Artist
    My art is about the essence and light, the hidden obvious and its luminous beauty. It is about the mysterious oneness of Cosmos as my greatest source of inspiration. I make paint behave like the universe on my canvas. Through this awesome occurrence, I observe how awareness, matter and energy inter-relate, perceive the process of the creation, and unveil a majestic beauty before my eyes. In the act of painting, I unify my artistic intention, the cosmic laws, and the fate of accidents. I paint to harmonize my inner self with an ever-expanding force that weaves everything into one being. (Bobak Etminani)
