About Alireza Elahi ... more >

“My paintings are inspired by the act of buffing; the removal of graffiti from urban walls. The abstract forms that appear in the battle between the graffiti artist and the eliminator are forms in between the conscious and unconscious. My attempt is to achieve this, not in the form of mere representation and repetition, but by adopting this method as a personal expression in abstract painting.”
