Painter Bakhshpour Passes Away

Iranian artist Jamal Bakhshpour passed away at the age of 71 in Cologne, Germany, on Sunday (June 21) after years of suffering from cancer.
Born in 1944 in Tabriz, the capital of East Azarbaijan Province, Bakhshpour was a painter. He lived in Germany for the last two decades of his life. His paintings have been showcased in galleries in Iran, Germany and Switzerland, Honaronline reported.
His paintings have a surreal theme, a style of art and literature developed principally in the 20th century stressing the subconscious or non-rational significance of imagery arrived at by automatism or the exploitation of chance effects, (surrealist works feature the element of surprise, unexpected juxtapositions and non sequitur). Being symbolic, his paintings are considered illusory in terms of colors and structure.
Visiting one of Bakhshpour’s exhibitions in Tehran in 2010, Aydin Aghdashloo, Iranian painter, author, art critic, art historian and graphic designer, noted: “To understand his paintings, one should regard him both as an illustrator who depicts his individual and illusory stories, and as a veteran artist with technical skills who takes advantage of the various elements of European and Oriental art.”
His last exhibition in Iran was held in Tehran in 2010.  A book of his artwork collection from 1964 to 2001 was published in 2002, comprising both colored and black and white paintings.
