Arran Rahimian

Edinburgh, United Kingdom

My work has been collected by interiors designers for projects and private clients across the world. My work reflects our natural surroundings and is built up of layers of pigment - yet still allowing some sections of the canvas to be left exposed. I do this purposefully to create depth, inviting the viewer into the painting through investigation of the visual elements within the work.

I consider the outdoors to be an extension to my studio; it plays a significant role in my work. My practice is conducted spontaneously and intuitively through walking. I am continually intrigued by the natural elements that surround me as their movement, color, and presence inspire me.

I am excited by the unpredictability and rawness of creating a painting. I do not plan my works, nor have a preconceived idea of how they will look. I look to create work that is visually stimulating and reflects our natural surroundings without being overworked and muddy.

Currently works and lives in Edinburgh.
