Gholam Yunessi

Yunessi Master of the poetic juxtaposition of classic and contemporary styles, Gholam Yunessi powerfully blends sensitive tonality with vibrant color to create art that transcends visual aesthetics. His creations stir subtle emotions that take residence in our unconscious.

This talent has been molded through years of dedication to the masters of his native Tehran -- starting with one of Persia's most famous sculptors, his uncle, who nurtured, shaped and chiseled the foundation of Yunessi's creativity. Yunessi continued his development under the guidance of renowned Persian artist, Shaness, and studied the history and techniques of the fine art of painting at the Tehran College of Fine Art.

Yunessi also frequently traveled to Europe to gain a personal understanding of the masters and the styles that characterized European art. As a result of this exposure he was able to move beyond the familiar and create a truly personal style that is born of passion, not custom. Finally, with this rich balance of near-eastern and European influences, he moved to America, where he now lives and where he continues to create and produce work that is recognized and exhibited around the world.
