In a reference to regional political events and how they influenced his childhood, Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar's recent works juxtapose life with death

Layers of past and promise


Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar’s body of exuberant multilayered paintings with a signature technique that sees each point on the canvas scrapped and remixed hundred of times tell a story of his land of birth, France, and his family homeland of Iran. Beneath the joy of the forms created by this rapidly emerging artist are tales of sadness as well as beauty as Rachel Spence discovers.

Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar

Franco-Iranian artist Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar’s oil paintings are well-known for exploring his visionary and philosophical views on life and humanity, derived from the artist’s personal life experience of post-revolution Iran, including the Iran-Iraq war, a two-decade experience in an uncertain place and sensitive time of the artist's life. ​

Exhibition of the month: Sassan Behnam-Bakhtiar, Saatchi Gallery, London

There’s a distinct movement visible in the paintings that not only reveals the artist’s process, but also a kind of gentle fluidity, a lapping almost (not dissimilar to Monet). Whilst the titles are mystical sounding, pointing towards Behnam-Bakhtiar’s musings around existentialism, nature and harmony: Guardians Of Life, The Pursuit Of Light, and Me and Her.
