Persian-American artist Meamar studied in Italy with some of the greatest artists of this century. As a result, his stylistic expertise ranges from classical to abstract. In the works of his “Original Collection,” Meamar utilizes some of the concepts of his past creations as the background for his new work. He plays very skillfully with our recollection and experience of time to carry us in a world that is defined at the same time by the past, the present and the future.

Instead of working on a blank surface, Meamar prints the image of one of his older paintings onto a wood panel, turning it into a piece of his history as an artist. He then paints over it, creating a new history out of which emerge pieces of the past, in the form of a hand, a face, or an eye. In addition to the traditional five senses of sight, hearing, touch, smell and taste, Meamar depicts masterfully other senses of beauty, balance/harmony, motion and temperature as well as a sense of time.

Meamar’s “Original Collection” can be seen at Art People Gallery, located 50 Post St., in the Crocker Galleria, in the heart of San Francisco’s Financial District.
