Drawing and Marquetry by Arashwww.ArtPal.com/arashrahimiart
Self-taught artist, Arash Rahimi works in a wide variety of mediums but the passion for drawing and wood carving are favorites to create one-of-a-kind art pieces. When viewing Arash's portfolio for the first time one is under the belief that these works presented are the creations of several talented artists. The diverse collections, however, are the efforts of just one. For wood carving specifically, Arash uses variety of natural color of woods. Each individual piece of wood is cut by hand scroll saw, then all of the woods come together carved by hand made tools by himself, sanded and then polished with a glossy spray to bring out the beautiful color of wood. These pictures are made with carefully selected wood color that matches the mood of the theme, often incorporating oyster, glass, canvas and charcoal pencil. All of the elements then come together in a handmade frame to create a memorable unique art experience.
In the short amount of time being in Utah, Arash has participated in Utah Art Festival, Urban Art Festival, Art of Safe Sex and has been awarded as the “Top Selected Artist” of 2018.
“Trying to heal the world by reflecting love, peace and social issues, the majority of my art pieces are inspired by the music I listen to. The beat, the lyrics, and the emotions I feel from the music I am listening to while I am creating. The creation process is cathartic, allowing my emotions to spill out onto the paper (or any other medium) as a release. I hope my works speak far louder than I.” Arash says.
