RASSOULI is known in the art community as an artist who reflects mysticism and near-eastern spirituality in his paintings and murals through the use of European painting technology. What appears on canvas is a timeless perspective that illuminates the divine creative light through the form of feminine power and beauty.
Known as an artist, a visionary, a speaker, and as a gifted teacher and guide in raising consciousness and developing creativity, Rassouli has created a worldwide following with his unique style and philosophy. What makes his art so unique is the way he translates spiritual experience from his subconscious onto canvas through meditation at sunrise. His vibrant hues, and joyful color blends coupled with swirling circular brushwork create a unique style of painting that he calls Fusionart, a style that Rassouli has created and registered and is presently teaching to many artists globally.
Born in Isfahan, Rassouli was recognized as the Best Student Artist in Iran when he was fifteen and was awarded a government grant to study painting in Europe. He migrated to the United States in 1963, where he studied painting and architecture at the University of New Mexico, and was honored with the Leadership Award from the Institute of International Education.
A conceptual vision of expanding light combined with his own creative visualization of feminine beauty has evolved in Rassouli since early childhood, and is expressed in his inspirational paintings, reliefs, book illuminations and murals. He was raised in a home decorated with murals and intricate floral designs. Inspired and encouraged by his Sufi mystic uncle, Rassouli developed an early appreciation for painting and poetry, and he spent endless hours taking lessons from classical and impressionist artists and studying mysticism. He discovered new ways to transform his subconscious images into forms that he could express and share.
