AMERICAN MASTER SCULPTOR
“Art is an expression of the rapture of being… unveiling a fragment of the radiance within all form.”
The exceptional work of master painter Arian is the product of natural artistic talent and heartfelt passion tempered by more than forty years of study, observation, and realization. As the founder of the artistic style known as “Figurative Modernism,” his paintings portray the essence of pure spiritual beauty as a metaphor for the human condition, often featuring “sacred geometry” and “the golden mean,” and portray a visual interpretation of the romantic inclinations that are inherent in mankind. According to Arian, art exists to remind mankind of life’s magnificence and to inspire us to strive to make our dreams become reality.
Arian received formal training in painting and sculpture at the Frudakis Academy of the Fine Arts in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, the Barnstone Studios in Allentown, Pennsylvania, and at a private art academy in Florence, Italy. Arian’s expansive use of subtle color variations, creative use of light and shadows, and exquisite figurative renderings, makes his paintings breathtaking, full of life, beautiful, and realistic. His works are often influenced by those of French artist William-Adolphe Bouguereau and American realist John Singer Sargent.
