Masoud Yasami

Masoud Yasami (American born 1949)

An Arizona artist, Masoud Yasami, does not align himself with any regional artistic group. His abstract multi-dimensional works deal with space, color, illusionism of balance and chaos. Embracing many mediums and materials, Yasami works with acrylic/oil paint, airbrush, paper, canvas and Bronze, transforming and constructing shapes into an illusion of realism that is about classical objects, clouds and skies that are painted to appear as wall reliefs. Masoud Yasami was represented exclusively by Elaine Horwitch owner of The Elaine Horwitch Art Galleries in SantaFe and Scottsdale from 1978 - 2003. Fibonacci Art Gallery became artists exclusive representative from 2003 after Elaine passed away. Fibonacci Art Gallery was founded and registered in Feb. 2003 to promote and represent Masoud Yasami worldwide and to catalog and to gather particular works for travelling exhibitions of artsists works. Yasamis paintings are in major private collections and Museums in US, Europe and Middle east. Yasami has been a Distinguished associate Professor of Painting at Arizona State University and assistant professor of art at University of Utah and has lectured at universities across US including University of Oregon, Oregon State University, Art institute of Boston, University of Wisconsin, University of Nebraska Arizona state University and Farabi University among others.
