Mohammad Fassounaki was born in 1944 in Tabriz, Iran where he also attended art school.
The inspirations behind the figures seen in Fassounaki’s works are drawn from his memories of passing scenes of people going about their everyday lives. These familiar features in his paintings are reminiscences of men and women in Azerbaijan.
Fassounaki often thinks about change and evolution – he is particularly interested in people as well as nature and this can often be seen in his works. Trees, plants and flowers are accentuated with warm hues of red, greens and pinks.
He notes human moods and relationships and it’s his use of lines and colour’s that inspire him to create these unique works.
