Massive otherworldly portraits comprised in the classic impasto style

Globs of oil paint can do the trick sometimes in portraiture and Salman Khoshroo‘s paintings showcase just that.

The Tehran-based painter creates massive portraits that can be several feet tall at times. Each painting depicts a human form performing different gestures. With a palette knife, Khoshroo goes about spreads globs of thick oil paint, defining the shape of each form in the impasto style. The paintings below were created for a 2015 show at Azad Gallery. Check out some of the mysterious portraits below and find more on Facebook and Instagram.
