Morteza Katouzian – that’s his name. He’s from Iran, and to me, he is one of the perfected artists alive in this era. His paintings are phenomenal, masterly, and timeless. His drawings are also excellent. Actually, he’s one of my favorite artist of all time. By the way, one important mindset is to truly and fairly appreciate great artist from all over the world. I think beauty is beauty. Sure, there are many manifestations of beauty, but if you only look at the artworks of those from your country and culture…or from a certain time-period, you will definitely be limited in your creation. Now, we wouldn’t want that, would we?
